 Princess Caroline Inaugurates Roger Capron's Sumptuous Ceramic Décor

After several years of restoration, Roger Capron's works have returned to the Galerie des Salines. On Tuesday, July 2, 2024, Princess Caroline attended an important inauguration at the Galerie des Salines to unveil the works of Roger Capron. Created in 1968 by the French artist, these ceramics of aquatic animals, recognized and awarded numerous prizes, initially numbered 29 pieces. 

As part of the Larvotto beach restructuring project, launched in September 2019, an extensive restoration effort was undertaken to refurbish the twelve enameled terracotta panels on site. These panels were removed, restored, and reinstalled. Fish, algae, and crustaceans once again adorn the facades of the buildings beneath the Larvotto promenade.

This restoration was supervised by several state departments: the Directorate of Public Works, the Directorate of Cultural Affairs, the Heritage Institute, the Domain Administration, and the New National Museum of Monaco (NMNM).

Beyond Monaco, much of Roger Capron's artistic heritage is located on the Côte d’Azur. Other architectural ceramic works by the renowned ceramist of the 1950s can be found at the Cannes maritime station and the Byblos Hotel in Saint-Tropez.
