At the end of the 19th century, women in the bourgeoisie often liked to have an artistic activity, but it was supposed to remain just a hobby, so as to be socially acceptable. But Camille Moreau-Nélaton (1840-1897) was an exception to this rule. After training with reputed artists, she succeeded in developing a personal art, clearly tinged by Japanism, which allowed her to be recognised as being one of the greatest ceramicists of her era.
Her exceptionally qualitative ceramics were thus displayed in world fairs and sought out by collectors and museums all over the world. A contemporary of Berthe Morisot, Monet or Renoir, she favoured the slip technique, which was used during the same period for so-called “impressionist” ceramics. She played a vital role in the training of her son, Etienne, the artist and art historian, who was also a collector of impressionist painters, and became one of the first donators to the State of this modern painting. Thanks to loans from both public institutions and private collections, this event will provide an opportunity to examine this original figure, who has never before been the subject of a monographic exhibition.
