Between 1937 and 1960, art critic Tériade commissioned some of the most prominent figures of the contemporary French art scene to produce lithographs for his luxury art journal Verve. Only 38 issues were ever published, each one richly illustrated with original prints editioned at the renowned Atelier Fernand Mourlot.

André-Aimé-René Masson (1896 - 1987) was a French artist. He began his study of art at the age of eleven at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, under the guidance of Constant Montald, and later he studied in Paris. He fought for France during World War I and was seriously injured.
His early works display an interest in cubism. He later became associated with surrealism, and he was one of the most enthusiastic employers of automatic drawing, making a number of automatic works in pen and ink. Masson experimented with altered states of consciousness with artists such as Antonin Artaud, Michel Leiris, Joan Miró, Georges Bataille, Jean Dubuffet and Georges Malkine, who were neighbours of his studio in Paris.
