Item Number: 500853

This item is reserved for auction


SIZE (approximate):


This is a rare Hand Signed lithograph by Marc Chagall titled "Paris L'Opera". This piece is hand signed by Marc Chagall. Published in 1964, this piece was printed in France by Mourlot Freres with whom Chagall printed all of his lithographs beginning in 1950 until his death in 1985. It was released as part of a rare limited edition. The sheet measures 25"h x 29"w. Russian born Marc Chagall (1887-1985) is one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century. His work, full of childhood memories and dreams, is associated with the modern art movements after impressionism. In 1948 in the workshop of the Parisian lithographic printer Fernand Mourlot (who is credited with the printing of this piece), Chagall finally found his home as a printmaker. Under the patient tutelage of Master Printer, Charles Sorlier, Chagall found color lithography to be the perfect graphic medium for his art. Christopher Conrad has written, "lithography soon became his favored printing technique. This is certainly due primarily to the fact that he could integrate the one element he had previously always missed in his graphic art: color."
