    About

    Founded in Boston in 1991 by Eric Mourlot, Galerie Mourlot is a leading art gallery specializing in graphic works by modern and contemporary artists, with one of the largest collections of lithographs in the world. In 2005, it was relocated to New York’s Upper East Side, where modern and contemporary masterpieces and their history are made available to the public at 16 E 79th street in NYC, NY, and internationally through galleries, museums, and art fairs.

    History

    The Atelier Mourlot, established in 1852, was initially a producer of fine wallpaper in Paris. In 1914, Jules Mourlot expanded the operation to include printing illustrated books and lithographic posters for art institutions, including the French National Museum. By 1937, with Jules’ son Fernand Mourlot at the helm, Atelier Mourlot became the largest and most famous print shop of the 20th century.

    Fernand graduated from the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Inside of the Atelier, he collaborated with highly recognized artists, including modern masters Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, Joan Miró, Marc Chagall, Fernand Léger, Jean Dubuffet, Henry Moore and Le Corbusier, for more than half a century to produce original lithographic works.

    In 1967, Atelier Mourlot moved from Paris to a studio on Bank Street, in New York City, and collaborated with artists including Robert Rauschenberg, Francis Bacon, Roy Lichtenstein, Alexander Calder, Ellsworth Kelly, Alex Katz and Claes Oldenburg to produce contemporary lithographic masterpieces. The studio closed in 1999, but this work and the process of its creation remains accessible via Galerie Mourlot.
