Although Jean Adhémar (then curator of prints at the Bibliothéque Nationale, Paris), called Coutaud, “the most famous surrealist printmaker”, he remains less known than most of the other important artists associated with the movement.
Coutaud’s work has been shown in galleries and museums in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Japan, Italy, and the U.S.
