In 1964, Adrien Maeght created the ARTE printing works located on rue Daguerre, in Paris. From 1966, Jean-Paul Riopelle worked closely with the technicians of this printing house and constantly pushed the limits of this printing technique. According to art historian Michèle Grandbois, Riopelle's artistic approach, in particular about the technique of printmaking, gives him a very particular originality: "His approach to printmaking testifies to invention, audacity and excess that will make him transgress, if not ignore, the traditional rules of the ''beautiful profession'' 1”.
