A bright, saturated-color example of the MARC CHAGALL (1887-1985) lithograph "Romeo and Juliet", printed by Mourlot, always in demand and desirable on its own, but this example is **HAND SIGNED** in pencil and dated 1977 in the image, by the artist, at lower right. This is a well known image by Chagall, created in 1964 for the ceiling of the Opera Garnier in Paris. Charles Sorlier in association with the famous lithography house Mourlot adapted this image from Chagall's sketches for the project and printed this. Measurements are 24 3/4" by 38 3/4". The total edition was 5,000 examples. Examples sell regularly at auction in Europe and America. The image is very popular; this is the fourth or fifth example I have owned. See the net for more about this popular image. Condition is excellent with no scrapes or abrasions (not examined out of frame but happy to do so upon request). The print includes the lettering at the bottom right edge, (examine the photos which show this), but that lettering is partially obscured by the framing in the images. ***Could be shipped in a hard plastic tube***, in which case shipping would be much lower than shown. Present brownish-gold frame (no mat, the print against the glass) shows light wear. Examples from the signed, numbered limited edition sell for tens of thousands of dollars at auction. This is a reasonable alternative to that or an unsigned example.
