Les Amateurs d’Estampes


The Association was created on November 24, 2017, when a print dealer wanted to bring together and bring together passionate collectors: very quickly an obvious consensus emerged, the desire to share this enthusiasm with as many enthusiasts as possible.

Our association welcomes all those who are captivated by prints, collectors or not, artists, gallery owners, curators, academics, students: promoting prints, from their beginnings to the present day, is our main objective.
This means taking part in exhibitions, fairs, symposia and all kinds of events where printmaking is represented, but it is also first and foremost a place for members to meet and exchange ideas, by organizing visits to exhibitions and conferences.

We are also keen to develop relationships with other associations with similar interests, and to act as an intermediary by lending works from our members’ collections to museum exhibitions.

Last but not least, we are keen to help academics and students with their research and, if need be, encourage the publication of works based on their work. To date, over 120 enthusiasts have joined us.
