Professor of the Practice Ethan Murrow was recently invited by D+S Fine Art Editions to complete a new stone lithograph at their shop in Paris. Over the summer in La Force France, Ethan also worked with D+S at their second shop to create large-scale lithographs on a Marinoni Voirin Press from 1880, one of just four of its kind in the world, and one of the biggest still in use. Master printers Deb Chaney and Stéphane Guilbaud celebrated the release of three new editions at an opening at their shop with Ethan on December 2 in Paris. This project was supported in part by the generous funding of a Tufts FRAC grant.
