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.
