Title: David and his harp (s.8886)
David a la Harpe
Medium: Original lithograph , in colours, 1956, on Velin Arches paper , with no margins, from an unsigned and unnumbered edition
Edition: A large edition
References: Chagall: The Lithographs: Catalogue Raisonne, by Charles Sorlier and Fernand Mourlot : Reference 134 ; Cramer (Catalogue Raisonee - Livres Illustres) 25;
Note: This was published as a plate in Volume VIII of Verve in 1956. The work contained 30 Original Lithographs. The work illustrated “The Bible” and consisted of scenes from the Old testament. The artist was a religious Jew who looked not for the precise meaning of the texts but read the works himself for their human and poetic sense. No doubt Chagall only depicted what stirred and inspired him. The series is at once colourful, dramatic and inspirational in its concept and figurative content.

Title: Thalassa II
Medium: Original etching in colours, 1959, on Auvergne paper, with full margins signed by the artist in pencil.
Size: Image10.2 x 30.5 cm (4 x 12 in.); Sheet 36.6 x 47.1 cm (14 3/8 x 18 1/2 in.)
Note: Mourlot dates this work to 1960 but Vallier states that it is most certainly from 1958 as it was published in Engelberts catalogue which appeared in that year.
The artist was very interested in Greek mythology and much of his work was dedicated to that theme. Thalassa was the primeval spirit of the sea. Two rather similar fables are recorded by Babrius. In one, numbered 168 in the Perry Index, a farmer witnesses a shipwreck and reproaches the sea for being “an enemy of mankind”. Assuming the form of a woman, she answers by blaming the winds for her turbulence. Otherwise “I am gentler than that dry land of yours.”. In the other, a survivor from a shipwreck accuses the sea of treachery and receives the same excuse. But for the winds, “by nature I am as calm and safe as the land.” Braque seems to personify this sport with a turtle-like figure.

Title: Scene Bacchique au Minotaur
Medium: Original Etching, Paris, 18th May 1933 , 111rd state of 3, on small Montval Fillegree paper, with Picasso watermark signature, signed by the artist in pencil, "Paris 18 mai ###III" on plate
Edition: From the edition of 260 on small Montval paper. There were also 50 on large paper and 5 on parchment
Literature: Bloch, Georges. (GB.79) - 1968-1979. Pablo Picasso, catalogue de l'oeuvre gravé et lithographié, 4 vol. No 192
Size: 44.5 x 34 (paper size) ;
Note: As Picasso delved further into his exploration of the Minotaur (this is the third plate to appear in the Suite Vollard), the scene in the studio becomes increasingly unfettered. Here, the beast and his counterpart, the sculptor, completely immerse themselves in pleasures of the flesh—wine, women, and repose. While the sculptor (in the form of a massive sculpted head) dominated the previous etching in the series, the Minotaur takes command of the scene here, dwarfing his human counterpart and raising his glass in a grand and encompassing gesture.

Published by: Galerie Louise Leiris, Paris
Note: In 1952 Picasso was asked by the Communist Party to create a poster for the third “Peoples Congress for Peace” to be held in Vienna in December of that year. The party did not give its approval for any of the six versions the artist had submitted. Instead a version of the dove flying from left to right was used which had already been deigned in 1950. Since the designs of “Bound Hands” were not to be used in poster form they were published instead as Original Lithographs in just three versions (ours being version 2) by the galerie Louise Leiris as Original Lithographs.
