La librairie-galerie La Hune (1944-1975) : un espace de monstration privilégié pour l’art de l’estampe

This essay tells the story of La Hune. La Hune is a library opened by Bernard Gheerbrant (1918-2010) in June 1944 in Paris. Five years later, it moved to Saint-Germain-des-Prés in order to meet Gheerbrant's ambitions: not only did he sell books, but he also started to organize exhibition. La Hune became a gallery for contemporary printmaking.
