Item Code: 7918

Medium: 12 lithographs (after the watercolors). A beautiful collection of lithographs, from the watercolor studies for the Jerusalem Windows, executed by Chagall in preparation for his famous stained-glass windows at the Synagogue at the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center in the Judaean Hills. A different design was created for each of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. Each image measures 8 x 6 inches (203 x 150 mm) and the full sheet size is 12 3/4 x 9 1/2 inches (326 x 243 mm). The designs were transferred to the lithographic stones by Charles Sorlier under the direction of Marc Chagall and these lithographs were printed in Paris at the Mourlot studio in 1962. There is a different Chagall composition printed on the back side of the sheet, as issued. Not signed.
