Marc Chagall’s vibrant and charming lithograph, Sarah and the Angels, illustrates chapter 18 from the Book of Genesis. In this passage, three angels visit the elderly prophet Abraham and his wife Sarah. Sarah gets the shocking news; she will finally conceive a child. Sarah, who is beyond her child bearing years, laughs with disbelief and surprise. Despite her initial skepticism and as the angels have foretold, Sarah will give birth to a son called Isaac, and he will found one of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.
