The RA Shop have collaborated with Galerie Mourlot, New York, to present a collection of rare lithographic posters and prints from l’Atelier Mourlot, the most celebrated print shop of the 20th century.
Founded in Paris in 1852, l’Atelier Mourlot has been synonymous with fine art lithography for over 150 years. From 1930, under the direction of the founder’s grandson, Fernand Mourlot, leading artists were invited to the studio to collaborate on traditional limestone lithography. For painters like Picasso, the medium provided an exciting new form of expression.
Picasso met Fernand Mourlot in October 1945 after much encouragement from Henri Matisse and Georges Braque. As they predicted, Picasso soon became obsessed with the possibilites of lithography and amazed the Mourlot team with his artistic audacity and talent. He proceeded to make many innovative experiments on the limestones. He would stay at the Mourlot print workshop for several months at a time, 12 hours a day, and over the course of 20 years he created nearly 400 lithographs.
While the studio closed in 1999, today Fernand’s grandson Eric Mourlot
continues the legacy of the print shop through Galerie Mourlot.
Lithograph printed for the book ‘Dan’s l’atelier de Picasso’, written by Picasso’s secretary and close friend Sabartes, and published by Editions Mourlot in 1957. This little portrait of a faun by Picasso is a lithographic reproduction of a drawing by Pablo Picasso. The craftsman that reproduced the drawing by hand was Henri Deschamps, Picasso’s
favorite and most trusted master printer at the Mourlot Studio. He relied on Deschamps any time that a painting or drawing had to be reproduced and it was not an already original print. They collaborated very closely from 1945 until
the death of the artist in 1973.
