    This is a superb impression of the definitive state, from the edition of 250 on this paper (there were 20 additional impressions printed on Japan paper, and 15 additional hors commerce impressions on Arches wove paper, for an overall edition of 285). Plate IX of 24 color lithographs by the artist illustrating The Story of Exodus. Published by Léon Amiel, Paris-New York, 1966; printed by Atelier Fernand Mourlot, Paris. Catalogue reference: Mourlot 452; Cramer 64 IX. Literature regarding this artwork: cf. Pierre Provoyeut, Marc Chagall: Biblical Interpretations, Alpine Fine Arts Collection, Ltd. New York London, 1983, p. 208. In 1966, Leon Amiel published The Story of the Exodus, a portfolio containing twenty-four large color lithographs, twenty-three of which were printed on paper measuring 500 x 370mm and one double-size plate with a centerfold. The edition consisted of a total of 285 portfolios. The name Exodus means "going out" or “departure." It refers not only to one of the most important events of the book, the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt, but also to other highly significant events as well, such as the oppression of the Chosen People in Egypt, the flight and call of Moses, and God’s covenant with the nation Israel at Sinai -- an experience culminating in His giving of the moral law (Ten Commandments) through Moses to the people. Chagall’s illustrations of this story are a superb example of the artist’s masterful use of vivid color and texture. The Story of Exodus as done by Chagall re-introduces a celebrated historical tale in a refreshingly beautiful way. Chagall was introduced in 1948 to original lithography by Fernand Mourlot, owner of one of the world's great lithography workshops in Paris. In the thirty-five years following over one thousand original lithographs were created through the collaboration of Chagall and Mourlot. With these spectacularly vibrant works of art Chagall has become recognized as the greatest chromo-lithographer in the history of modern art.
