Marianne Clouzot, painter, ceramist, printmaker, and illustrator. Her father was the noted art critic, Henri Clouzot. In 1923, encouraged by her father, Clouzot began to study at the Union Centrale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. After five years, she went to study painting at the Académie d’André Lhote in Paris. She exhibited at the Salon d’Automne, Salon Des Artistes Indépendants, and elsewhere. In 1935 her exhibition at the Galerie Charpentier was particularly praised in the press. In 1940, the editor Henri Lefèvre asked Clouzot to illustrate the book Trois Contes (Three Tales) by Francis Jammes. That was the beginning of a very successful career as an illustrator. Between 1940 and 1979 she illustrated more that 85 books. She also illustrated a number of children’s books.

Pochoir, French for stencil, defines a technique of print making popular in France in the early 1900s. It is a labor intensive process of applying brilliant color by hand using a series of cutout stencils. Each plate is an original print using up to thirty stencils in one image. All are hand colored and most are signed in the plate by the illustrator.
