Exhibition overview

The history of Jean-Pierre Raynaud and the “Pot” began in 1962 when the artist, in a spectacular gesture, filled a flower pot with cement, painted it, and displayed it. Twenty-five years later, the same Pot continued to be part of the artist’s work.

The exhibition in detail

The Histoire du Pot exhibit was born out of the desire to explain Jean-Pierre Raynaud’s work, following the 1985 installation of one of his sculptures in the Fondation’s garden in Jouy-en-Josas. This monumental piece, composed of a white greenhouse with glass walls containing an immense gilded pot, is reminiscent of the artist’s other creations with this theme.
