Meet Eric Mourlot. For onwards of 152 years, Fernand Mourlot (Eric’s grandfather) has been synonymous with the resurgence of lithography – a process which under his influence, attracted the greatest artistic masters of our time. The medium provided a new avenue of expression, a new realm of possibilities for the likes of Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Miró, Braque, Dubuffet, Léger, and Giacometti to enrich their own work as well as fine art in general. As a child, Eric Mourlot participated in the printing process, soon becoming enthralled with his surroundings in the printshop. It became a source of inspiration for him, quickly igniting a passion for the relationships and collaborations that took place between artists, printers, gallerists, and publishers. Today, 164 years later, Mourlot continues to promote the art of publishing and printing that his family pioneered. Stay up to date on everything Eric has going on at https://www.mourloteditions.com/, Today, Eric is talking art everything with Craig, enJOY!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Kathy Lee interview shows what a kind, gracious, and patient man Craig Ferguson is, and that she is as well. Even though, she needs a lifetime of therapy!
