Description Provenance Credit
Description Naudot contributed to the revival of soft-paste, or artificial, porcelain, a medium that had been abandoned at the time of the French Revolution (1789-99). In conjunction with the porcelain, he used "plique-à-jour," or openwork enamel. The refined, balanced design of these bowls contrasts with the organic, curvilinear style of Art Nouveau practiced elsewhere at this time. Naudot is represented in the Musee d'Orsay by a soft paste, plique-a-jour enameled bowl from 1903 (OAO 172).
Provenance Louisiana Purchase Exhibition, St. Louis, 1904; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1904, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
