Bruno Jacomet, heir to the Jacomet know-how

Heir of a know-how

Bruno Jacomet took over the Atelier in the 1980’s. He is the grandson of Daniel Jacomet, art printer and inventor of a process associating collotype and stencil colouring.
Trained by his uncle (Pierre), and his father (André), he became heir to a unique and unparalleled technique, which allowed him to create incredibly faithful painting reproductions, with know-how almost a century old.

An atelier with the greatest of its time

The atelier Jacomet worked with the greatest of its time: Picasso, Braque, Chagall, Rouault, Dufy, Miró, etc., publishing for example, Leonardo da Vinci’s Manuscript B, Champollion’s manuscript, and the sketchbooks of Picasso, Lautrec, Matisse, Sutherland, Moor, and Signac.

Contemporary artists

Among other artists, he published the works of Olivier Debré, Hervé Di Rosa, Gérard Garouste, Edouardo Arroyo, Jan Voss, Cabu, and Wolinski. In the Atelier Dugrip-Picard-Jacomet, he now offers contemporary artists a new technique, athough it is several thousands of years old : the stencil.

Colouring with stencil

Openings are cut in a thin sheet of zinc after being delineated according to the drawing, and the colour to be reproduced. The stencil produced is applied on the proof for printing. After establishing the value range for each colour, as well as the shape and position of each pass, colouring is applied with a special round brush. The process will be repeated as many times as there are colours.
