Lot description
Image size: 9.5 x 6.9 inches (24.1 x 17.5 cm)
Paper size: 14.8 x 11 inches (37.6 x 27.9 cm)

The images in this portfolio are the last prints that Chagall ever completed. They were finished in May 1984, and he died in March of the following year. That the artist chose to work in the medium of linoleum cut in black was clearly intentional as the images become shadows of the artist's life: his final gestures. This impression is in excellent condition and comes beautifully matted and framed as shown.
