Chagall Bible II - 1960

People have been deeply moved by Marc Chagall’s artworks at all times. He carefully selected biblical themes for his two illustrated Bible books. His meticulous approach conveys how intensively he must have contemplated the existence of humanity and the human belief in God. By the end of the first passage of his artistic voyage through the Old Testament (in 1956 with his series “La Bible”), he had impressively produced 135 original works of graphic art (105 etchings and 30 lithographs).

With his second series (“Dessins pour La Bible / Illustrations for the Bible” of 1960), he added another 48 lithographs, which dealt mostly with the story of creation and women in the Old Testament. In doing so, Chagall’s biblically themed works became the most important element of his original grahic art.

But beware: Often, later reproductions (copies, i.e. art prints) on hand-made paper are sold as so-called “originals”. However, these prints have nothing to do with original lithographs and may rather be compared to prints in a daily newspaper. When buying original lithographs, do not allow yourself to be mislead by flowery descriptions and misleading terminology such as “luxury edition”, “grano lithograph”, or similar. There are unique features to distinguish between precious lithographs of the years between 1956 and 1960 and cheap art prints.
