Marc Chagall - the Complete Set of Lithographs, Fine Condition

About

CHAGALL, MARC. Lithographe [The Lithographs of Chagall, Volumes I - VI, complete] “As with all the greatest of his contemporaries, Chagall’s genius is multiform. He is first of all a painter, but like Matisse, Derain, Braque and Picasso, he has sought other means of expression besides painting. They have all found these means in sculpture, ceramics, stained glass, engraving and lithography ... The most brilliant effects, however, have probably been produced in the field of engraving and lithography." –Julien Cain, introductory essay FIRST EDITIONS of all six volumes (French-language issues) of Chagall’s catalogue raisonné. Complete with 28 original lithographs, including original lithograph dust jackets for volumes I–IV. Notes and catalogue by Fernand Mourlot. Monte Carlo: Andre Sauret & George Braziller, 1960-63-69-74-84-86. Quarto, original cloth volumes, original dust jackets, glassine, original slipcases to volumes I, II, III, and V, VI. All volumes in fine condition without any of the fading or wear to the dust jackets typically seen. A SUPERB SET - THE FINEST WE'VE HAD.

About Marc Chagall (Artist)

Described by art critic Robert Hughes as "the quintessential Jewish artist of the twentieth century," the Russian-French modernist Marc Chagall worked in nearly every artistic medium. Influenced by Symbolism, Fauvism, Cubism and Surrealism, he developed his own, distinctive style, combining avant-garde techniques and motifs with elements drawn from Eastern European Jewish folk art.


Born Moishe Segal in 1887, in Belarus (then part of the Russian empire), Chagall is often celebrated for his figurative paintings, but he also produced stained-glass windows for the cathedrals of Reims and Metz, in France; for the United Nations, in New York; and for the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, as well as book illustrations, stage sets, ceramics, tapestries and fine-art prints. Characterized by a bold color palette and whimsical imagery, his works are often narrative, depicting small-village scenes and quotidian moments of peasant life, as in his late painting The Flight into Egypt, from 1980.


Before World War I, Chagall traveled between St. Petersburg, Paris and Berlin. When the conflict broke out, he returned to Soviet-occupied Belarus, where he founded the Vitebsk Arts College before leaving again for Paris in 1922. He fled to the United States during World War II but in 1947 returned to France, where he spent the rest of his life. His peripatetic career left its mark on his style, which was distinctly international, incorporating elements from each of the cultures he experienced. Marc Chagall remains one of the past century’s most respected talents.
