Les Ateliers de Chagall: Les amoureux 

 

This work was published in the important portfolio entitled “Les Ateliers de Chagall” (the studios of Chagall) in 1976, which was created to celebrate Chagall’s love for printmaking, especially lithography. They were sold out as soon as they were released to the public. The publisher, F. Mourlot, in Paris, produced 250 complete folios numbered on the Colophon. This piece was created earlier in his career, and it was rendered by his colorist, Charles Sorlier, with Marc Chagall’s instruction and supervision in lithography especially for this important publication.
