Without a doubt was Charles Catteau the most multi-talented ceramic artist of his generation. Designer, professor, chemist, artistic director...all those skills allowed him, between the two World Wars, to work for the Boch Frères Keramis, La Louvière and to elaborate, at first sight, an extravagant work.

Given the lack of a detailed inventory until now, many questions have remained unanswered.This reference book aims to define the nature, the quality and the extent of Charles Catteau's artistic legacy:

The diverse techniques
The forms and designs
The markes and signatures
The execution
The rarity
The Value
The restorastions
The forgeries
.......
