  • Catalogue Essay

    Efforts in this medium were greatly indebted to the enterprising encouragement of the two men: the Parisian dealer Ambrose Voillard, who commissioned prints by contemporary artists, and eventually became the most important print publisher of his time; and Auguste Clot, the great lithography printer who printed many of Vollard's editions.  Vollard believed that by using the finest paper and inks and employing the best master printers his editions would appeal to collectors as affordable alternatives to unique works.
