Inspired by the powerful magic of the tales in A Thousand and One Nights, Marc Chagall created a series of stunning coloured lithographs to illustrate four of them, perfectly mirroring the colourful splendour of the Orient, with its mystery and poetry. The original translation by the British explorer, linguist and Orientalist Sir Richard F. Burton (1821-90) captures the very essence of the tales, and reflects the fascinating experience gathered by the translator during his extensive travels.
Marc Chagall: Arabian Nights reproduces the subtle, iridescent colours of the original lithographs together with the texts of the four classic love stories that Chagall selected.
