Cahiers d’Art today


Cahiers d’Art presents itself as a unique contemporary art journal (La Revue), richly illustrated. Witness of its time, Cahiers d’Art has been following and writing art history for nearly a century.

Founded in 1926 by Christian Zervos, Cahiers d’Art defined itself by the combination of striking typography and layout, abundant photography, and a juxtaposition of ancient and contemporary art of its time. La Revue ceased publishing in 1960, and was reactivated in 2012 on the initiative of Staffan Ahrenberg.

The new Cahiers d’Art preserves the spirit, the graphics, and the eclecticism of Zervos time. It presents contemporary artists such as Ellsworth Kelly, Rosemarie Trockel, Ai Weiwei, Arthur Jafa, and Christo, and some of Zervos’ favorite artists – Picasso, Miró, and Calder, among others. Cahiers d’Art works directly with the artists or their estates to create La Revue. La Revue is published in a standard and a limited edition, including a creation signed and numbered by the main featured artist.

Pablo Picasso by Christian Zervos

A Modern Masterpiece is Reborn: In 1932, Cahiers d’Art published the first volume of the Picasso Catalogue, a project prepared by Christian Zervos in partnership with Picasso himself. This massive undertaking became Zervos’s life work and one of the most influential pieces of scholarship on the 20th century’s most renowned artist. At long last, this historic 33-volume set is available again. The original catalogue, with corrections from Picasso Administration, is now available in French and in English for the first time.


“There are many catalogs of Picasso’s work, but art dealers tend to speak of the Zervos…with reverence.” Sir John Richarson


Cahiers d’Art works with the most important artists of the 20th and 21st centuries from among others Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Henri Matisse, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp to Ellsworth Kelly, Rosemarie Trockel, Thomas Schutte, Ai Weiwei, Arthur Jafa, Christo, and Cildo Meireles. Each collaboration is a celebration of the artist’s individual character and vision.
