Portanier born in 1926 Cannes, France
In 1948, Portanier, a painter, discovered clay as a material to work with at Vallauris, the ceramics centre in the south of France, where he met Picasso. There he developed his unique style in the medium of ceramics changing earlier plans to study architecture and drawing at ENSBA in Paris. Both Portanier and Picasso had workshops in Vallauris, where in 2018 Portanier created the "Gilbert Portanier Foundation."
Size: 9.5” high x 4.75 dia.
