At 7pm

Tinker Auditorium

 

Attend a special evening led by Eric Mourlot, founder of New York’s Galerie Mourlot and grandson of Fernand Mourlot, who established the original Atelier Mourlot in Paris in 1852. The Atelier Mourlot was a lithographic printshop, and as its leader Fernand introduced a long list of celebrated 20th-century artists—Calder, Chagall, Dufy, Léger, Matisse, Miró, and Picasso, to name a few—to the art of lithography.

 

In a fascinating talk, Eric Mourlot will discuss the history of the studio. He will speak about the artistic and historical importance of the posters currently on view in the FIAF Gallery’s exhibition, “The Masters of Lithography,” which were created by these elite artists in the Atelier Mourlot. Mr. Mourlot will touch on the artists’ relationships with his grandfather, sharing rarely seen photos and anecdotes. He will also delve into the process and technique of lithography, explaining how these original, vintage works of art came to be, and why they have become such desired collectibles.

 

The talk will be followed by a Q & A session, and a reception will complete the evening.
