INFORMATION: Jean-Pascal Lorriaux was a passionate collector who had the idea to publish a collection of lithographs presenting the hands of the great artists of his time. Thus Chagall, Picasso, Fautrier (of which he was the assistant and close friend the last years of his life), Foujita, Cocteau, Lurcat or Mathieu would go to his studio to engrave their hand on lithographic stone. Lorriaux would not have time to finalize his project and only a few tests - of which this rare lithography - would be realized ..

Jacques Villon : (1875-1963) is a french cubist painter, and is the brother of Marcel Duchamp. He chose the pseudonym de Villon in tribute to the poet François Villon. He started his artistic career with engraving and illustration. In the beginning of the 1900's, he is influenced by Edgar Degas, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Some years later, he is part of the group of Puteaux. His work includes more than 700 canvases. Aged 82, he realised 5 stain-glass windows of the Saint-Etienne Cathedral in Metz. His works are included in the collections of the biggest museums in France, Japan, USA, Italy, Australia, Mexico, Portugal, Great Britain...
