A poster created by Chagall for an exhibition at the Galerie des Ponchettes in Nice. This stunning eight-color lithograph was printed by the celebrated Atelier Mourlot in Paris in 1959 after the original poster.
Educated in St. Petersburg and Paris, Russian-born artist Marc Chagall emigrated to France in 1923. Though influenced early on by Russian Expressionism and French Cubism, Chagall created a style unique to the 20th century. His mastery of color suffuses his paintings and prints, as well as the stained glass designs he created for European cathedrals.
