Jean BESNARD (1889-1958): Major ceramist between the wars, Besnard participates in 1923 at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs alongside his elders Paul Beyer, Emile Decoeur and Séraphin Soudbinine, and artists of his generation such as René Buthaud, Jean Mayodon or Maurice Gensoli.
In 1925, he exhibited at the Arts Décoratifs where he established his style of simple pieces or incised repetitive geometric patterns. These first creations will be published by Primavera. In 1928, Besnard was invited by Jacques Adnet to exhibit at the Compagnie des Arts Français.
