About Atelier Clot:
L’Atelier Clot is the oldest lithography workshop in Paris, located in the charming Marais district. With a history dating back to 1896, the workshop was founded by Auguste Clot, one of the most talented lithographers in the capital at the time. His pioneering work in the use of color attracted the attention of the young group of artists “Nabis” and the art dealer Ambroise Vollard, who commissioned works from him for his famous albums of prints.
From 1896, Atelier Clot was the place of production of the most beautiful masterpieces of color lithography, bearing the signature of great artists such as Degas, Cézanne, Renoir, Sisley, Redon, Bonnard, Vuillard, Signac, Munch, Rodin and many others.
At the end of the 1950s, Peter Bramsen, a young, recently graduated lithographer, went to Paris to complete his training. In 1963, he became a partner of the former workshop. In 1965, Clot, Bramsen & Georges were founded and Bramsen became an artistic and professional leader. In 1968, the workshop moved to the Marais district, rue Vieille du Temple. This is where a host of artists such as Asger Jorn, Alechinsky, Bram Van Velde, Lindström, Wyckaert, Pol Bury, Topor, Arman, Saura, Bjørn Nørgaard, Voss, Toledo, Michaux, Soulages, Calder, Wifredo Lam and many others met to work on stone carvings.
Under the direction of his son, Christian Bramsen, the collaboration with artists around the world continues today.

The artist


Pierre Alechinsky

Famous artistFamous artist
Born in 1927


Pierre Alechinsky, the magician of brushes and architect of abstraction, was born on October 19, 1927 in Brussels, Belgium. From an early age, Alechinsky was captivated by the vibrant colors and bold shapes that surrounded him, developing an early passion for art. His artistic quest began as an inner fire that would soon ignite the world of creative expression.

Trained at the École nationale supérieure d'architecture et des arts visuels de La Cambre in Brussels, Alechinsky quickly emerged as an indomitable spirit, refusing to confine himself to the conventional limits of art. Inspired by surrealism and informal art, he found his voice in spontaneous gesture, letting his emotions guide the frenetic dance of his brushes on canvas.

Alechinsky's artistic career took off in the 1950s when he co-founded the experimental group CoBrA, alongside Karel Appel and Asger Jorn. Together, they challenged established artistic conventions, creating a dynamic, energetic movement that shook up the European art world. This period shaped Alechinsky's distinctive style, blending lyrical abstraction with spontaneous figurative elements.

His work transcends geographical boundaries, with Alechinsky exploring artistic territories in Europe, Asia and the USA. The artist has captured the essence of movement and life in works that breathe life, each brushstroke a dance in itself. The shimmering colors and sinuous lines of his creations testify to a boundless imagination, defying artistic conventions and inviting the viewer on a sensory journey.

Over the decades, Alechinsky has constantly reinvented his artistic language, embracing new mediums and techniques. His work ranges from monumental paintings to delicate prints, from abstract works to more figurative creations. Whether on canvas, paper or wall, each of Alechinsky's works is a visual adventure, an invitation to plunge into the vibrant universe of his imagination.

Visionary artist Pierre Alechinsky continues to inspire generations with his unwavering commitment to creative freedom. His legacy transcends the ages, reminding us all that art is a never-ending exploration, a celebration of life that evolves with every brushstroke.
