Mythology, Religion and Love on Display in a Survey of Marc Chagall Prints

Launch Slideshow

Pablo Picasso once remarked, “When Matisse dies, Chagall will be the only painter left who understands what color really is.” Perhaps even more so than his paintings, Marc Chagall’s lithographs demonstrate his masterful use of color. Starting in the 1950s, the artist worked with printer Fernand Mourlot to create lithographs that captured a range and intensity of color that was then unparalleled in the medium. The works that emerged from their collaboration spanned the latter half of the artist’s career and employed themes central to Chagall’s work, including mythology, religion and above all, love. Sotheby’s is pleased to present a survey of Chagall’s prints, including works from Daphnis and Chloé, The Circus and Twelve Maquettes of Stained Glass Windows for Jerusalem. – John Maher
