An original lithograph printed in fresh black ink on full sheet of wove paper. From the book edition. One of twelve original lithographs published in The Lithographs of Chagall, Volume I. Published by André Sauret, Monte Carlo, 1960; printed by Atelier Mourlot, Paris.Russian by birth, Marc Chagall was educated in St. Petersburg and Paris, eventually emigrating to France in 1923. His early influences were Russian expressionism and French cubism, but Chagall created a style that was unique to the 20th century. His mastery of color suffuses his paintings and prints as well as the stained glass made for European cathedrals.
