Why We Love This

An original lithograph printed in colors on wove paper bearing apportion of the Arches block letter watermark. This work 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 XX 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.

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," referring 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 was introduced to original lithography in 1948 by Fernand Mourlot, owner of one of the world's great lithography workshops in Paris. In next thirty five years, over one thousand original lithographs were created through the collaboration of Chagall and Mourlot. Through these spectacularly vibrant works of art, Chagall has become recognized as the greatest chromo-lithographer in the history of modern art. Chagall’s illustrations of this story are a superb example of the artist’s masterful use of vivid color and texture.
