Jean René Gauguin


Jean René Gauguin (1881-1961), son of the renowned French painter Paul Gauguin, carved his own niche through his exceptional work as a ceramic artist in Denmark. Operating primarily in the early to mid-20th century, Gauguin's contributions to ceramics are marked by a bold, sculptural approach that often drew upon mythological themes and natural motifs. Among his most acclaimed works are the "Woman Riding a Fish" sculpture and the "Birds in Flight" series, both of which showcase his mastery of form and his ability to infuse dynamism and depth into his ceramic pieces. Gauguin's work stands out for its innovative use of glazes and its unique synthesis of Art Nouveau and Symbolist influences.
