Summary Marc Chagall is among the most beloved of 20th century painters -- celebrated for a playful artistic vision at once pastoral and dreamlike, and for his seamless combination of classical mythology, Jewish mysticism, and the folklore of French and Russian peasantry. This monumental catalogue raisonne of Chagall's lithographic work is an invaluable resource for further appreciating the depths of this artist's craftsmanship and genius. Chagall found particular pleasure in lithography, for it was the one technique that allowed him to work directly on the printing plate (the lithostone). The almost childlike delight of his work, its spontaneity and characteristic shimmering palette of colors, are evident throughout this lavishly produced collection of over 1000 lithographs. Among the most collected works of the 20th century, these lithographs are here given the scholarly attention they deserve.
