ITEM DETAILS

After Marc Chagall: Vitraux Pour Jerusalem.

Offset vintage lithograph on heavy paper.

Image used in poster is signed in plate by Chagall.

Dated 1961.

Poster was for the exhibition Chagall “Vitraux Pour Jerusalem” at The Louvre’s Musée Des Arts Décoratifs.

Framed under glass.

Marc Chagall (July 6, 1887-March 28, 1985), a Master of Color modernist who's been called "the quintessential Jewish artist of the 20th century."  However, Chagall saw his work as a Dream for All People, despite religion.  

What we have is a rare, wonderful find.  An original French exhibition poster from 1961 titled 'Vitraux Pour Jerusalem' ('Stained Glass for Jerusalem') for the “Musée des Arts Décoratifs”, a museum of the decorative arts and design, located in the Palais du Louvre's western wing.  Offset lithograph on paper.  Image used in poster is signed in plate by Chagall.  Chagall’s style has been described as a hybrid of Cubism, Fauvism, and Symbolism, and his supernatural subjects are thought to have significantly influenced the Surrealists. Though he actively engaged in the Parisian artistic community, art for Chagall was first and foremost a means of personal expression. He preferred to be considered separately from other artists, his imagery and allegory uniquely his own.
