Emile Lenoble
(1876 – 1940)

Emile Lenoble was trained at l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs and under Ernest Chapelet, whose daughter her married. One of the founder members of Salon des Artistes Décorateurs and Salon d’Automne, he regularly exhibited pieces noticed for their unique delicacy. Inspired by classical shapes, Lenoble’s ceramics have defined lines, neutral tones as well as incised or carved patterns of a great refinement.
