The work of art measures 12" x 14.25" unframed. Included is a Letter of Authenticity and a supporting multi-page report of an examination of the piece by a professional authenticator. Ships free in the USA. For his final body of lithography based upon a single theme Chagall chose Homer's Odyssey (M. 749-830) executing 82 lithographs, 43 of them in color based upon this epic. The Odyssey was published by Mourlot in two volumes in 1974 and 1975. The text, translated by Darcier, revised and compiled Emile Ripert, was composed in a typescript created and engraved by Claude Garamount. Now the exclusive property of the Imprimerie Nationale, this work was printed on state presses.
