Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Camille Fauré was the proprietor of the shop, Atelier Faure, that produced the enamels inspired by the artists of avant-garde movements, especially Fernand Léger and Robert and Sonia Delauney. During the years 1919-1924, Fauré partnered with fine enamelists Alexandre Marty and his daughter, Henriette. They developed a technique of sculpting the enamel into an unusually thick three-dimensional surface, sometimes cutting a sharp edge within the design. By the time they left, they had trained five masters in the technique.

Along with apprentices, they perfected their techniques and were able to faithfully reproduce or repair specific designs as often as needed. Each had his own secrets and strong points and they all worked together for the success of the shop. Fauré's daughter, Andrée, had become the visionary designer of these wonderful objects. Her bold use of color and sharp, geometric designs cause the work to stand out from others produced during this period. The Art Deco pieces produced 1925-1940, are displayed in museums and collections around the world. In the 1960s, the Art Deco pieces were put back into production, but the quality of the three-dimensional designs was not the same. Busiest from the 1920's through the 1950's, Atelier Fauré continued in production until closing in 1994.
