Monte Carlo, André Sauret, 1975
At the age of 88, Chagall produced this evocative interpretation of The Tempest. The illustrations add a new dimension to a much-loved text and combine Shakespeare's themes of magic and illusion with his own otherworldly images. Just as The Tempest was one of Shakespeare's final plays, this wonderful series of lithographs marks a 'farewell' to Chagall's frenetic creative output for such large-scale projects.
Limited edition, one of 250 copies from a total edition of 270, signed by the artist on the justification page, on Arches; folio; 50 original lithographs after Chagall, of which 31 are hors-texte, printed by Mourlot, loose as issued in the original printed wrappers; housed in the original cream vellum portfolio box with title in gilt to cover and spine, a fine copy.
