* Porquier-Beau

In 1875, the painter Alfred Beau joined the Porquier faience factory. Alfred Beau is the first artist to breathe creative life into Quimper earthenware. During his collaboration with Porquier, from 1873 to 1903, he created sumptuous decorations: the so-called yellow-bordered botanical series (approximately 122 different models identified), Breton scenes (approximately 225 models) and legendary scenes (7 models) as well as views of Breton landscapes (about 20 models).
