Founded in 1852, in Paris, the Atelier Mourlot was originally a producer of fine wallpaper but came to be known for fine art lithographic printing in the early 20th century. The founder's grandson, Fernand Mourlot, took charge of Atelier Mourlot in the roaring twenties and saw museum attendance increase with the popularity of his exhibition posters. He built on this success and invited some of the most celebrated artists of the time to his studio to collaborate on traditional limestone lithography. Artists such as Braque, Calder, Chagall, Dufy, Léger, Matisse, Miró and Picasso worked with Fernand to produce unique and visually striking lithographs that were often used as posters to promote the artists' work or exhibitions. While the studio closed in 1999, today Fernand’s grandson Eric Mourlot continues the legacy of the print shop through his gallery. This collection of rare posters from the atelier's archives has been curated in partnership with Galerie Mourlot in New York and is available exclusively through King & McGaw.
