"Chagall's first colour lithographs had been drawn whilst he was in New York
but it was in the stimulating atmosphere of the Mourlot studio, where Picasso
had found such inspiration from 1945, that Chagall's real pleasure in the medium
of colour lithography came to full fruition in the years from the beginning of
the 1950's." (Weston)
During the 1950s the renowned French printer, Mourlot Freres, printed
most of the "original" posters of the most important artists
of the day. In 1959 they printed the series "Affiches Originales"
for collectors. They are reduced lithographic versions of the "original"
posters created by the contemporary masters, Picasso,
Chagall, Braque, Matisse,
Miro, Leger, and Dufy.
