Crème de la crème
The Amour series consists of thirteen colour lithographs. With their refined colours, soft lines and detailed patterns, the prints are the crème de la crème of avant-garde lithography.
Denis worked on the series for years, making countless sketches, drawings and proofs. In the exhibition, you can see the colour lithographs together with his journal entries, design drawings and proofs.
You can follow each step of the creative process between artist and printer and witness the journey from proof to perfection. Publisher Ambroise Vollard and especially master printer Auguste Clot were also critical to the genesis of the series.
