Etching from the Bible


With the support of the famed art publisher Ambroise Vollard, Marc Chagall set out to illustrate the Bible in 1930. For this ambitious undertaking, he journeyed to Israel for inspiration and created scenes dealing with the holy prophets, the founding of the Jewish people, and the history of their kings. He produced an impressive body of one hundred and five etchings, which were published in a meticulously hand-colored edition. Recently, they have appeared in exhibitions at the Nassau County Museum of Art, the Jewish Museum of Milwaukee, and the Museum of Biblical Art to name only a few. His biblical etchings are among his most celebrated artistic accomplishments.
