About

Signed, titled, dated and numbered from ed/75. Erik Desmazières is considered one of the greatest contemporary printmakers, and has had more than 10 museum retrospectives in Europe, Canada and the United States during the past few years. In 2009 he was elected to the Académie des Beaux-Arts de l'Institut de France. Erik Desmazières has long been inspired by libraries, be they real or imaginary. Also attracted by architecture, the artist could only be fascinated by the National Library, expanded and renovated by Henri Labrouste under the second Empire. With this new portfolio Erik Desmazières has now turned his attention to depicting scenes in the central storage areas for printed matter, the hidden part of the library. Desmazières allows us to enter the belly of the library, a metal lair, to capture the mystery of this huge reserve of books — before the building is redeveloped as part of the renovation of the Richelieu site.
