Review, 12/10/03 Rhythm Section (an entertainment guide jointly produced by the Wisconsin State Journal and the Capital Times)
In 1966, Leon Amiel published The Story of the Exodus, a portfolio containing twenty-four large color lithographs (M. 444–467), twenty-three of which were printed on paper measuring 500x370mm and one double-size plate with a centerfold. The edition consisted of 285 signed portfolios, 250 on Velin d'Arches numbered from 1 to 250, 20 on Japanese paper containing a signed impression of the frontispiece, and fifteen copies reserved for the artist and the others involved in the project. Aside from the 20 signed impressions of the frontispiece on Japan, none of the individual impressions were signed (and if you see a signature on any pieces other than the fronitspiece on Japon paper, it is almost certain that they are forgeries. Although this edition is comparable in size to Chagall's 1960 Daphnis and Chloe portfolio, unsigned images from which sell for $8000-$16,000 for the single-page size, we have priced these at $5250-$5750 unframed. We have been told that galleries in New York City and San Francisco CA are selling them for $6000-$12,000 each. For Chagall's non-Biblical works, please use the link to The Worlds of Marc Chagall.
