* Léon Brard (1830-1902)

is a French painter and ceramist. Born in Caen, Léon Brard moved to Tours in 1859. Disciple of Charles-Jean Avisseau, he shared with Auguste François Chauvigné the fact of having first been a painter before producing ceramics. He was influenced by 18th century art and produced patronymic or trompe l'oeil plates in the style of that era. He also dabbled in Hispano-Moorish and revolutionary subjects. He has the distinction of having combined colored enamel techniques with pewter.
