The lithograph : a good turn for an exceptional drawings

The lithographs made while Egon Schiele were alive are practically nonexistent; some very rare copies can be found in different museums and in the most prestigious private collections. (As a matter of fact, Egon Schiele barely made 4 lithographs alltogether).

Nowadays the art-work from Schiele has been reproduced to excess : in all the shapes, all the colours, and by using all the modern printing processes.

It is just a kind of “copy/paste” without feeling, and showing no consideration for the artist and his work.

Egon Schiele deserves better, much better.

Turning to the lithograph is a way to reconcile the original art work and its reproduction so that Schiele would have liked it ; it is a way to go to the heart of his inspiration with the same moves, and with the very same period machines.

It is to see to it that this lithograph belongs to him, so that it may be a link between him and us.


Kind Reminder about the Lithography

Please note that a litho is not a poster or just another art reproduction. When designing a litho, strict technical and artistic standard requirements should be fulfilled.

However, a lot of basic and common reproductions are suddenly becoming lithographs without having the relevant quality. Adapted to fit any case, the word « lithograph » is nowadays used in an attempt to justify, to give credit and therefore to deceive a not well-informed buyer.

Invented at the end of the 18th Century, this technique is indeed a good means of reproduction but above all, it is a creation work.

To take a colourful example, this technique means quite a lot to the reproduction of drawings or paintings as much as the Roll-Royce company means to the car industry or Louis VUITTON to the fine leatherwork.

This is not a matter a chance if all the world’s greatest painters have adopted this technique.

The lithograph is fully hand-made such as a drawing or a painting (lines, shades and colours are drawn in the stone before being hand-printed on the lithographic hand-press).

By this way, the artistic process is preserved whereas it is upset when using the modern printing means that are eventually a simple “copy/paste” without feeling.

You must have understood by now …the lithograph is infinitely more than just a reproduction. Its exceptional design is a masterpiece in its own right.
