In closing the exhibition of "Treasures of the Atelier du Livre d'Art et de l'Estampe of the Imprimerie Nationale", presented in the windows of the gallery of Valois until 13 May, the Minister of Culture and Communication Frederic Mitterrand brought together players in the business last Friday.
Were at his side Didier Trutt, CEO of Imprimerie Nationale, and the team of the Atelier du Livre d'Art et de l'Estampe with their director Christian Jourdain. The minister insisted that the members of the Atelier du Livre d'Art et de l'Estampe comment the windows of the gallery.
Excerpts from the speech of the Minister:"These windows are a delight, it's absolutely magical. They show the expertise held by true artists in the workshop, itself surrounded by the Imprimerie Nationale.
I know there are many questions that arise about the workshop but you can be assured that I am one of your strongest supporters and I will remain.
I wish that the work of the workshop is always valued and I will ensure that we establish the best solutions to allow you to pursue in good conditions this admirable work."
