Déjà imprimeur des deux volumes de la Bible illustrée par Chagall, Mourlot contribua à la formation de l'artiste à l'art de la lithographie dans les années 1950. C'est à cette époque que Chagall commence en effet à fréquenter l'atelier de Mourlot afin d'apprendre les procédés lithographiques et qu'il se lie d'amitié avec les artisans de l'imprimerie, notamment Charles Sorlier.

        Oggetti in meno. 1966. (Serie di 4 fotografie originali)

      S. e., S. l. 1966 - 4 fotografie originali vintage in b/n, silver print, cm 24 x 17,5. Al verso timbro del fotografo su una sola delle fotografie e annotazioni a penna. Serie di 4 fotografie originali della mostra realizzata nel 1966 nello studio torinese di Pistoletto, che viene considerata come anticipatrice dell'arte povera.ÂNelle immagini si possono osservare varie opere, ormai entrate nella storiografia dell'autore, qui indicate in annotazione come: Il letto, Colonne in cemento, Colonna in legno bianco, Costruzione in legno, vetro, specchio ecc.ÂSono opere create attraverso un processo di lavoro legato alla spontaneita' e alla contingenza. Con questi lavori, ognuno diverso dall'altro, come se si trattasse di una mostra collettiva, viene infranto quel dogma per cui ogni opera di un artista deve essere stilisticamente riconoscibile, come un marchio commerciale standardizzato. Gli Oggetti in menoÂvenneroÂaccolti molto freddamente dalla critica, tanto che determinano un congelamento del valore di mercato dei precedenti quadri specchianti che stavano avendo un grande successo, in particolare negli Stati Uniti.
