M. 557 Couverture, Volume III
Chagall created this romantic image for the cover of the 3rd Volume of The Lithographs of Chagall. The set is a six-volume catalogue raisonné of Chagalls lithographs, richly illustrated with 28 original lithographs. Printed by Fernand Mourlot who ran a lithography press where such greats as Braque, Matisse, Picasso, Mir and Chagall came to render their designs and immortalized them in the history of art. These six volumes were issued separately over a period of 26 years and are very scarcely found excellent condition. All volumes published simultaneously in English and French.
