What is an original lithograph ?

Lithography is a printing technique, obtained by inking generally on a limestone and printing flat which allows to create a original work in several copies and in limited edition. A true work of art, lithography is part of the graphic arts process.

Many great artists have used this flexible technique to give free rein to their imagination. The artist will be able to draw in grease pencil on the stone as on the paper. The litho does not present any technical difficulty proper.

An original lithograph is usually signed and numbered. A lithograph may also bear one of the following inscriptions:

BAT : good to shoot (annotation of the artist himself when he is satisfied with the work)

EA : artist proof

HC : out of trade

Artists' proofs are the property of the artist who can sell them personally. Some artists enhance the colors of EAs which give them a rarity and added value, these original works become unique.

Off-trade is offered to publishing employees, especially to the printer.

There are still very few lithographers' studios in France today, but the process remains popular with certain contemporary artists, connoisseurs and collectors.

Paul Jouve, the story of a young man in the hands of genius

Born 16 March 1878, in Bourron-Marlotte, Paul Jouve will later become a renowned artist in his field. Having grown up with the image of an artist father, the animal painter Olivier de Penne, a close relative of the family, will influence Paul Jouve towards animal art. At only two years old, the artist's passion was already expressed when he was trying to make drawings of his cat. Seeing the passion born in his son, Auguste Jouve then wants to encourage him in the path of the artist. He takes her to visit museums and the Garden of Plants. During these visits, it was the big cats who attracted the most attention of the budding artist. The school has never been the fort of the artist and Paul Jouve was no exception to this phenomenon.

Having attended art schools such as the School of Decorative Arts and the School of Fine Arts, the artist always preferred to make drawings of nature. His inspirations, they found them in other places than the school. By observing places filled with animal life, Paul Jouve could draw on him to create works of great value. His interest in the animal world was such that he had decided to take animal anatomy courses to acquire more in-depth knowledge of the objects of his fascination. With such determination, it was not surprising that the talent of Paul Jouve received early attention. Indeed, only 16 years, the artist had already had the chance to exhibit at the Salon of the Society of French Artists. During this first exhibition, the young Paul Jouve surprised his talent, thanks to his work "The Lions of Menelik", which was done with many impressive details.

But Paul Jouve also has talent in lithography and he proves it by selling very early works in this category of art. After doing his military service, it was during the universal exhibition of 1900 Paul Jouve began to really gain notoriety. With the frieze of fawn he had made for this occasion, he was able to attract attention and began to really receive many compliments. In the rest of his career, Paul Jouve is no longer content with animals present in France to give him inspiration.

The artist begins his series of long journeys around the world for the observation of animals and the production of works of art inspired by wildlife. So, he was able to release some very beautiful works, some of which are part of the 18 works proposed during the 30 June auction. Paul Jouve is unquestionably the leader of the 20th century animal painting. An animal artist par excellence, he performed Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book between 1906-1914. He is well known and has participated in a number of major exhibitions such as 1900, 1925, 1937, and 1931 International Colonial Exhibitions. In all his life, it was his fascination with the wild animals that inspired him the most.

Inspired works, fruits of a great passion

In addition to the great mastery of the painter's art, these paintings also reflect part of the course of wildlife. Throughout her travels on different continents, the artist has acquired a vision of life really different. In a world still largely natural at the time, his works are reflections of what he discovered, and reflections executed with a touch of master. It is not for nothing that Paul Jouve is considered the master animal art of the twentieth century. This artist has devoted his entire life to the artistic representation of what the world of animals is. It's as if he wanted to discover the soul that hid behind these animals considered wild. Driven by a passionate passion, he never failed in the mission he gave himself and sought new inspiration day and night. The 18 works put at your disposal during the auction at the end of this month are among the different beauties that resulted from the relentlessness that Paul Jouve had in his life.

Franck Riester, Minister of Culture, inaugurates the French Pavilion at the 58th International Exhibition of Art in Venice

A year after the appointment of the artist Laure Prouvost to represent France, Franck Riester, Minister of Culture, was in Venice this Wednesday 8 May where he inaugurated the French Pavilion at the 58th International Exhibition of Art - La Biennale di Venezia, along with Paolo Barratta, President of the Biennale, and Pierre Buhler, President of the Institut français. The work is to discover in the gardensof the 11 May Biennale at November 24 2019. Laureate of the prestigious Turner Prize in 2013, Laure Prouvost conceived the project Deep See Blue Surrounding You / See This Deep Blue Melt You echoing the context of Venice, a floating city designed on water and by water, and that of the French Pavilion located in the heart of gardens, this immense garden where there are 28 national pavilions among the 89 countries represented this year. The Minister of Culture praised the relevance of the artistic proposal: “For an artist, accepting to represent France at the Venice Biennale is an important responsibility. It is a matter of ensuring national representation, in a world where the reality is that of an art that circulates across continents. Laure Prouvost seized on this paradox, inherent in the project, to question more widely the notion of identity, so important and so sensitive in our current societies. "He continues:" The relations between generations, memory, language and its translation, fiction are some of the springs of the collective epic proposed by the artist. What marks in this proposal made by Laure Prouvost for the Venice Biennale, are the values ​​that she brings into play, forged on otherness, benevolence and humanism, the attention she pays to her environment. . "Artist Laure Prouvost:" I like to question what we present and represent, who we are and where we are, both personally and on a human scale. To have the opportunity to represent France is for me both an immense honor, and an immense chance to be able to continue my approach, this quest towards an ideal elsewhere allowing us to get to know each other better, as men, women, young, old, of French or foreign origin. »She specifies« I worked with the idea of ​​the octopus in mind, and my project for the French Pavilion offers, in a metaphorical way, an immersion in the belly of a sprawling animal a little unknown to find who we are. "Commissioner Martha Kirszenbaum abounds:" The octopus Deep See Blue Surrounding You / See This Deep Blue Melt You has, in a way, a head which is the film and fictional work displayed in the center of the Pavilion. It is an initiatory journey - from the Parisian suburbs to the north of France, from the Palais du Facteur Cheval to the Mediterranean Sea - to Venice and the French Pavilion. From this head stems an installation made up of vestiges of the film, resin, earth, glass, plants or even water vapor, to which are added performances. The installation in a way a sensory extension of the film, where the spectator is invited to find his place. Laure Prouvost hopes that with his history, his feelings, he will enrich the experience of the work and that he will also feel himself becoming a tentacle of this project. »After Sophie Calle and Annette Messager, awarded the Lion d'Or for her installation Casino in 2011, Laure Prouvost was the third woman to enter the history of the French Pavilion. Laure Prouvost was chosen to represent France by the Minister of Culture and the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs in May 2018, on the proposal of a selection committee made up of six experts in contemporary art: Guillaume Désanges , art critic and curator; Gilles Fuchs, president of the Association for the International Diffusion of French Art (ADIAF); Christine Macel, chief curator, National Museum of Modern Art (MNAM) - Center Pompidou; Sandra Patron, director of the Regional Museum of Contemporary Art Occitanie / Pyrénées-Méditerranée, Sérignan; Jean-Marc Prevost, director of Carre d'art, Musée d'art contemporain de Nîmes; Annabelle Ténèze, General Manager of Abattoirs, Musée - Frac Occitanie Toulouse; as well as three institutional representatives: Laurence Auer, Director of Culture, Education, Research and Network at the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs; Béatrice Salmon, deputy director in charge of plastic arts at the Ministry of Culture; Pierre Buhler, President of the French Institute.
