Illustration for the Bible
 
In 1956 Chagall edited the first series of Bible lithographs in "Illustrations for the Bible". This was a series of 18 coloured lithographs and 12 black-and-white ones. We only show the coloured ones, because the black-and-whites are on the backsides. The reason of this is, that they are taken from the original book, edition: 6500. This book was also and especially meant to spread the reproductions of the 105 Biblical etchings Chagall had made earlier.
The lithographs from this book had also a signed and numbered edition with margins. We don't have any lithograph from that edition at this moment.
