The Paris Print Fair is a gathering place for art dealers, collectors and institutions,where exhibitors are both vessels of knowledge and interpreters of a narrative. It is a fair that aims to highlight the importance of printmaking in its function of spreading images over the centuries, illustrating the memories of civilizations from all over the world and giving us access to works by key artists from the 15th to the 20th century.

Christian Collin, president of the Chambre Syndicale de l’Estampe, du Dessin et du Tableau, said "The Paris Print Fair, the first event dedicated to printmaking in its uniqueness, succeeds the Salon de l’Estampe et du Dessin, held for the last time in 2016. The CSED Thad already instilled a new dynamic in this specific art branch by creating the Se-maine des Galeries Parisiennes de l’Estampe et du Dessin in 2018, making the Paris Print Fair the must-attend annual event fully dedicated to this practice for specialists and the general public."
