    "Saint-Germain-Des-PréS", From "Derriere Le Miroir" No. 66-67-68 "Paris", Consisting Of Nine Colored Lithographs And Two Black And White Lithographs Issued In Conjunction With An Special Exhibition Of Chagall's Paintings On The Subject Of Paris At Gallery Maeght,Paris,

    lithograph in colors,, 1954, , from the edition of around 1200, aside from the signed and numbered editions on wide margined arches paper,, As printed by Mourlot, published by Maeght, Paris.

  • State:
  • Condition:In very fine fresh condition, the colors strong, without margins as published.
  • Size:
  • Sheet: 15 by 11 in(38 x 27 cm.)
  • References: Recorded and illustrated in the standard text on the lithographs of Chagall by Mourlot, No. 100, Cramer, No. 24.
  • Framing: Framed in accordance with accepted conservation standards, acid free mats and mounts, removable hinging.
  • Note: Chagall's spiritual home was Paris and when he left France before WW II for the U.S. he was somewhat despondent. After the war and several short trips back to Paris he finally relocated for good in the late forties. His joy at being back in Paris is reflected in burst of creative color and lyrical romantic imagery distinctly evident in works of this era and perhaps the zenith of his creativity. The "Derriere le Miroir" "Paris" lithographs are clearly some of his best work in the medium and explains why "Paris" is considered the most desirable of the "Derriere le Miroir" issues.
