20th Century Decorative Arts

Juliette Vesque

Juliette Vesque (1881-1962) was one of the two Vesque sisters. The other was named Marthe (1879-1949).

From 1901 to 1925, they worked for the Manufacture de Sèvres, the leading French porcelain manufacture, where they hand-painted floral decorations on plates, cups, vases, and other objects. They left the Manufacture when its decorative style changed with the Jazz Age (they didn’t like it anymore), and went on to work for the Museum d’histoire naturelle (Natural History Museum), where they painted zoological illustrations, specializing in entomology. They also illustrated specialized books on flora, and did several plates for the Larousse Encyclopedia.
