Item Description: 1960. First Edition. (CHAGALL, Marc) CAIN, Julien and SORLIER, Charles. The Lithographs of Chagall. Monte Carlo, New York, Boston: André Sauret; George Braziller; Boston Book and Art Shop, 1960-86. Six volumes. Folio, original beige cloth, original dust jackets (themselves original lithographs), original acetates. $11,500.First editions in English of the six-volume catalogue raisonné of Chagall’s lithographs, richly illustrated with 28 original lithographs (including the dust jackets)."Chagall's emblematic irrationality shook off all outside influences: color governed his compositions, calling up chimerical processions of memory where reality and the imaginary are woven into a single legend, born in Vitebsk and dreamed in Paris" (Dictionary of Modern Art). For Chagall, the medium of lithography did not come easily. Printer Fernand Mourlot ran a lithography press where such greats as Braque, Matisse, Picasso, Miró and Chagall came to have their designs printed and to learn about this still nascent print-making process. "For many long months Chagall came and worked tirelessly, and his dissatisfaction allowed him to have only a few of his first attempts printed" (Sorlier, 45). Volumes I and II contain 24 of the original 28 lithographs published throughout the series; the dust jackets and frontispieces of Volumes III and IV account for the remaining four. (Volume V was published near the end of Chagall's life, and Volume VI was published posthumously.) All were issued separately over a period of 26 years and are very scarce as a complete set. All volumes published simultaneously in English and French. Volumes I and II also issued in a deluxe signed limited edition of only 100 and 150 copies. Gauss, 391. Freitag 1914. See Cramer, 43, 56, 77, 94. Cloth of Volume II mildly toned, occasional minor nick or rub to extremities of dust jackets and acetate. A beautiful set in about-fine condition.

Item Description: 1969. Book Condition: Very Good. 31 x 22.75 inches. "Vitrail et les Peintres de Reims" by Marc Chagall, Signed Lithograph printed in 1969 from an edition size of 50. The overall is size of the Lithograph is 31 x 22.75 inches. The condition of this piece has been graded as B: Very Good Condition, with signs of handling or age. Here is some supplemental information about the Lithograph: Signed in Pencil and Numbered out of 50. "The Stained Glass and the Painters". Growing up in Vitebsk, young Chagall was fascinated by the stained glass painter at his village temple. Lithograph printed for an exhibition of a group of painters and glassmakers at the Cultural Center of Reims, France in 1969. Taken from "Designs for the Bible" and interpreted by Sorlier, ref. no. 118 in "Chagall's Posters - A Cataloque Raisonne', Sorlier.Published by the Culural Centre of Reims. Printed by Mourlot Freres, Paris.According to Cogniat, in all Chagall's work during all stages of his life, it was his colors which attracted and captured the viewer's attention. During his earlier years his range was limited by his emphasis on form and his pictures never gave the impression of painted drawings. He adds, "The colors are a living, integral part of the picture and are never passively flat, or banal like an afterthought. They sculpt and animate the volume of the shapes. they indulge in flights of fancy and invention which add new perspectives and graduated, blended tones. His colors do not even attempt to imitate nature but rather to suggest movements, planes and rhythms."He was able to convey striking images using only two or three colors. Cogniat writes, "Chagall is unrivalled in this ability to give a vivid impression of explosive movement with the simplest use of colors." Throughout his life his colors created a "vibrant atmosphere" which was based on "his own personal vision.". Signed. Poster. Bookseller Inventory # YY6916-B
