Marc Chagall Original Lithographs

One of the giants of 20th Century art, Marc Chagall created masterpieces of color and story.  He is recognized as the foremost color lithographer of the 20th century, and did not believe in terminology which placed him in any school or movement. His themes incorporate recollections of his early years in Russia, his native village, flying lovers, mythical creatures of folklore and legend, and his beloved adopted city of Paris.  

"When Matisse dies," Pablo Picasso once remarked, "Chagall will be the only painter left who understands what color really is."  He also said, "There's never been anybody since Renoir who has the feeling for light that Chagall has.”

These original lithographs are collected from Robert H. Ballard’s sources in the US and Europe which have been located through decades of research.
