Gustave Joseph Chéret

Gustave Joseph Chéret (1838-1894) worked in the second half of the 19th Century. He was the younger brother of the painter Jules Chéret. He also worked for the ceramist Joseph-Théodore Deck and also worked under the great 19th century master Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse. Chéret joined the master’s atelier and also married Carrier-Belleuse’s daughter, Marie. As an accomplished creator of decorative arts as well as sculpture he was perfectly placed to succeed his father in law as artistic director of the Sèvres factory after Carrier-Belleuse who died in 1887
