Built in 1881 by printer Eugene Dufrenoy, the workshop located at 49 rue de Montparnasse wascreated to install Dufrenoy’s lithographic presses. Housing two floors in 15,000 squarefeet, the workshop beganwith 19th century flat machines operated by belts driven by propeller shafts and a steam boiler that was used to provide energy for the machines.
The premises were later occupied by the Michard Printing Company, whichspecialized in creating special edition maps filled with vibrant colors. Finally, the workshop fell into the hands of Fernand Mourlot in 1976 and became a fine art print shop. The brother duo and craftsmenwere part of the revival of lithography and began working closely with artists such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Alberto Giacometti, Joan Miró, Marc Chagall and many otherartists of the 20th century. The Mourlot company is now known by its current name, Idem Paris.
