Jean Charlot was born in France in 1898 and educated at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris. He served in World War I prior to moving to Mexico in 1920.
A truly remarkable artist and gentleman, Jean Charlot's work is known throughout the artistic work. Charlot configured Picture Book II wherein his Original 1933 PICTURE BOOK was described as follows: That book has become something of a classic for the artist's original use of multi-color lithography. He would prefer to call his prints "chromolithographs, " harking back to the popular prints of the nineteenth century.He has the ability, almost unique in the present century, of making color separations, sequences, and combinations entirely in his mind. Each separate color, which he draws in black on the plate, carries only a portion of the design; none is a complete image. The picture appears only when all seven or eight colors blend together at the end of the printing run. Unique in both style and color, this rare, simple Charlot Lithograph, CARGADOR, is featured in JEAN CHARLOT'S PRINTS, A CATALOGE RAISONNE by Peter More, Ref. 127, Pages 98 & 99.
