Special proof before the issued edition. Issued edition of 75 hand-printed and hand-signed and on large format paper. Drawn and printed at the Atelier Mourlot, Paris 1957.

Superb impression with brilliant colours. On pale cream Arches paper. In perfect condition (never previously famed). Full margins, Sheet: 36 x 36.2 cm.

Note: This image was very greatly admired when Chagall drew it in 1957. As a result there was also an unsigned edition with the image slightly trimmed and no margins for the ' Revue XXe Siele'
