Vase with lid is a 1926 vase by René Crevel. It is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.[1]


Crevel designed the decorative painting, which was replicated and painted on a stock porcelain blank by a craftsman at the Sèvres workshops located near Paris.[1]

In 1925, Crevel was awarded the commission to decorate the ceramics pavilion of the International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts in Paris.[2] In addition to creating decorative wallpaper and panels, Cervel painted and designed six vases to be produced by acclaimed French porcelain manufacturers.[2] The painting style on this series of Art Deco vases combines the landscape and figurative genres.[2]

Description and interpretation[edit]

The vase is of glazed porcelain and painted in a Fauvist style.[1]
