Drawings for the Bible.
 
In 1960 the famous book "Drawings for the Bible" was edited. Chagall made 25 coloured lithographs for this series, plus 26 black-and-white ones. Again, the black-and-white ones are on the backsides of the coloured ones, as these lithographs are taken from the original book. It had an edition of 6500.
There was also an edition of 50 signed and numbered lithographs of this series, of which we have one in our collection: nr. 247.
