From the drawing to its printing, this lithograph has been entirely realized by hand.
With the same technical and artistic constraints, the same moves are made on the very same period machines.
Drawn and printed colour by colour on "Marinoni Voirin" lithographic flat press of 1920.
ATELIER CLOT : A PLACE STEEPED IN HISTORY
Having a litograh printed at the Atelier Clot is in many ways a unique experience.
This atypical place is more than a workshop ; it is where history and know-how are merging.
Every single corner is highlighted with the past ; not one stone, not one roller or one printing press that does not echo back to it.
For more than 120 years, the Atelier Clot has been linked with the greatest names in Painting.
Lautrec, Degas, Renoir, Rodin, Monet, Munch.... or more recently Foujita, Matisse, Calder, Soulages…
This list is so prestigious that we do not get tired of declaiming it.
Printing a litograph at the Atelier Clot is expecting more than just the successful achievement of a project.
It is wondering if places and machines may have a memory.
It is spreading History on paper.
