About

A group of 8 offset and original lithographs on smooth wove paper after Russian-French artist Marc Chagall (1887-1985) with various titles ranging in years from 1950-1980. Included in the group are "L'Aime du Cirque", offset lithograph from 1980, "The Ceiling of the Paris Opera" original lithograph, 1966, and others. All are unsigned as issued from their respective publishers. All were printed in Paris, France and published by Derreire le Miroir, Jacques Lassaigne or Galerie Mourlot. Original lithography: The last two images within the shown pictures are of a single print (a yellow angel with a red building), an original 1966 double page stone lithograph; and the "Vence Cite des Fleurs et des Arts Fetes de Paques", 1953 single page lithographic advertisement. The prints range in size from the smallest being 14" x 10" to the largest being 15" x 22". From a private collection, Miami, Florida estate. All are in very good to excellent condition. Marc Chagall was a Belorussian-born French artist whose work generally was based on emotional association rather than traditional pictorial fundamentals. Marc Chagall was born in Belarus in 1877 and developed an early interest in art. After studying painting, in 1907 he left Russia for Paris, where he lived in an artist colony on the city’s outskirts. Fusing his own personal, dreamlike imagery with hints of the fauvism and cubism popular in France at the time, Chagall created his most lasting work—including I and the Village (1911)—some of which would be featured in the Salon des Indépendants exhibitions. After returning to Vitebsk for a visit in 1914, the outbreak of WWI trapped Chagall in Russia. He returned to France in 1923 but was forced to flee the country and Nazi persecution during WWII. Finding asylum in the U.S., Chagall became involved in set and costume design before returning to France in 1948. In his later years, he experimented with new art forms and was commissioned to produce numerous large-scale works. Chagall died in St.-Paul-de-Vence in 1985.
