René Crevel (10 Aug.1900-18 June 1935) was a French writer involved with the surrealist movement. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ren%C3%A9_Crevel)
According to the Met, he was also an artist:
"....The writer-painter Crevel produced the decorative design, which was painted on a stock porcelain blank by a craftsman at the Sèvres workshops near Paris." (http://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/484923)
Southeby's also: "Crevel exercised his diverse skills when he collaborated with Paul Follot to design modernist tapestries for the 1925 Exposition des Arts Décoratifs..." http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/ecatalogue/lot.43.html/2015/20th-century-design-n09365
HOWEVER, at least one source claims the writer and the artist were 2 different people with the same name:
"Almost nothing is known about the designer René Crevel, who is often confused with the well-known Surrealist writer of the same name. Life dates of 1900-1935 are frequently assigned to the designer, but in fact they are those of the writer, who was born and committed suicide in Paris. The Benezit dictionary cites (without life dates) a painter-decorator Rene Crevel born in Rouen who could well be our man. His career seems to have covered the period 1920 until 1940, based on his participation in the annual Salos of the Societe des Artistes Decorateurs ....
Crevel the designer seems to have turned his hand to a wide range of projects. The earliest, which dates to about 1920, is a group of wallpapers.... 1924... a complete room setting... By 1930 he was also designing carpets, tapestries and enameled objects.... he created murals...a line of table ceramics and linens...ceramics and glass...."
