Robert Lallemant ou la céramique mécanisée, exhibition catalogue, Jacques de Vos, Paris, 1984, n.p.
A ceramist who trained at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Dijon, France, under the supervision of the sculptor Ovide Yencesse, Robert Lallemant came to Paris in 1921 and worked without remuneration in a ceramic studio before setting up his own. He spent much time undertaking repeated trials to find forms to mirror the spirit of his time, and to interpret the industrial sensitivity of the period.
