Chagall Lithographs 1974-1979 (Lithographs, Volume 5)
Marc Chagall, Charles Sorlier, Robert Marteau
translated from French by John Ottaway
spectacular full color plates of the complete catalogue of Chagall's lithographs between 1974 and 1979. it seems to be the first book representing Marc Chagall on the tracker.
This is an absolutely beautiful book, arranged with notes by Charles Sorlier--the engraver under Chagall's direction--and an introduction by Robert Marteau. I cannot recommend this enough. Unless you have seen this book, I would be almost certain it includes work you have never seen of Chagall.
