This is a signed lithograph from an edition of 5000. It features the scene of Adam and Eve banished from Paradise, which was taken from the stained glass windows of the Metz Cathedral in France. This poster was printed for an exhibition held at the National Museum in Nice. It is signed and dated in ballpoint pen, 1975. Published by the Society of Friends of the National Marc Chagall Biblical Message Museum, Nice. 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.
