The Atelier Desjobert in Paris was founded by lithographer Edmond Desjobert and eventually passed on to his son, Jacques. Edmond worked with Picasso on some of his earliest lithographs. He would later print for Dali, Chagall and Matisse, as well as many emerging artists. As a result his workshop became a meeting place for many artists in Paris, particularly foreigners and those new to the medium. He was open to experimentation in the lithography process, including the chine collé method and working with washes on the stone.
