Vintage signed Pierre Bonnet Enameled Copper Painting Limoges MF
P Bonnet Enameled Copper Painting Limoges MF. As seen in photos there are some condition issues at the corners. Regardless this is a beautiful example of the quality of enamel paintings produced in the early part of the 20th century by the master enamellers of Limoges. Each colour in these Limoges enamels has to be applied separately then fired then on to the next colour. Enamels can take between 16 and 22 firings, a long and laborious process that has to be right first time each time. No wonder they are so sought after. Pierre Bonnet worked at Limoges capital of the "Arts du Feu" for over twenty years.
A former student of the Ecole des Beaux Arts, he was the recipient of many awards including the Meilleur Ouvrier de France. In 1955 he became President of the National Jury in Limoges and was awarded l'Ordre du Merite de l'Artisant Francais.
He was considered a Master Enameller of his day. This stunning enamel was done by Bonnet himself, not simply produced in his atelier. He has signed it on the front. This item is in the category "Art\Paintings". The seller is "mavuo5" and is located in this country: CA.
