French Pottery – Ceramics from the French Revolution (Faience Revolutionnaire)
The French Revolution (Révolution Française; 1789–1799) was a period of radical social and political change in French and European history. French Revolution began in 1789 with the convocation of the Estates-General in May. First years of the revolution were dominated by important events as the assault of the Bastille and the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen.The Republic was proclaimed in Sept 1792 and King Louis XVI was executed in 1793. These difficult years during which thousands of people were killed, influence art including pottery. Ceramic plates with themes from the Revolution become part of the everyday life and are highly collectible nowadays.
