Marc Chagall – Chagall Lithograph III Frontispiece

Marc Chagall, Chagall Lithograph III Frontispiece, is an original color Lithograph on Arches paper made in 1969.  This beautiful blue, green, and red toned print features a man presenting a woman with a bouquet of flowers under the moonlit sky.  This lithograph is pencil signed by Chagall in the lower right margin, annotated H.C. in the lower left margin.  There is also a very unique dedication “Pour Fernand” along with a special drawing by the artist.  Chagall dedicated this piece to Fernand Mourlot, who was the famous lithographer who worked closely with the artist to produce his prints.  Mourlot 578.

Marc Chagall’s influence is as vast as the number of styles he assimilated to create his work. Although never completely aligning himself with any single movement, he interwove many of the visual elements of Cubism, Fauvism, Symbolism and Surrealism into his lyrically emotional aesthetic of Jewish folklore, dream-like pastorals, and Russian life. In this sense, Chagall’s legacy reveals an artistic style that is both entirely his own and a rich amalgam of prevailing Modern art disciplines. Chagall is also, much like Picasso, a prime example of a modern artist who mastered multiple media, including painting in both oil and gouache, watercolor, murals, ceramics, etching, drawing, theater and costume design, and stained-glass work.
