Marc Chagall
janice laporte (03/16/2013)
I have a signed Marc Chagall with a stamp with a star signed E.A. on the bottom left. It is poet reclining. My question is why is this not numbered? Has it much worth? Thank you Janice LaPorte

Is my painting an unpublished Marc Chagall?
Raquel (04/03/2012)
We've had this painting in our family for more than 80 years + it has been passed from generation to generation, it is signed Marc Chagall, it is that of a bride in a red dress with a white veil, the head of a man appears close to her, there are a couple of doves to the right and a bouquet of pinkis roses, this painting has been seen by several area art dealers and never been taken out of its frame as we have not allowed it, but based on what they have seen, the paper of matting, the material on which is painted on, and the back of the painting itself shows signs to them that it is an original, we don't know who to contact to actually let us know, everyone that comes to the house marvels at the beauty of the art and the colors. If anyone's interested in seeing it, I can submit photographs. Thank you

Is my Chagall authentic?
JM (06/21/2011)
Found a framed painting in my mother-in-laws attic and on the back it says Marc Chagall -1973 with red numbers. It has a sticker saying To dd Gallery. The painting loos like it could be a Marc Chagall bukt is not signed or the signature is under the matte. It appears to be a watercolor sizing around 5x7 on a 8x10 matte. Any suggestions on how I can find out it this is an original. Any advice would be welcomed. Thank You

I have a Chagall print of " Bowl of Cherries" which is signed in the bottom right corner - it is numbered however there is a roman numeral I or a capital letter i before the number on the print. Does anyone know why or what this means ?

Chagall's "Original Bouquet"
richard (10/12/2008)
I see this lithograph everywhere on sale for $20-40.00 with Chagall's signature on the LEFT HAND SIDE UNDER THE PICTURE. Several years ago I bought a framed "Original Bouquet" that looks like the real thing with the signature IN THE PAINTING on the left hand side. The previous owner said it was purchased from an old hotel that was closing. Might I have something of value here that needs to be looked into and is there anything special I should be looking for? Thanks! Richard

Ron Martin (02/24/2008)

Chagall Watercolor
Cynthia (02/01/2008)
I recently purchased a Chagall watercolor and charcoal signed original art study for "Mermaid in the Sky" without a COA. Piece was found in the U.K. by seller. It is signed "Chagall" without his first name. Do you know how I can get this piece authenticated, and find out it's age. I am in California. Thanks!

Chagall Lithograph
fred (01/22/2008)
Same old questions. I purchased two lithographs at an estate sale. One is "The Emancipation of Man" and the other is "Violiniste Bleu". Any idea how to tell if they are authentic? They are professionally framed and sealed.

Chagall Lithograph bought at an estate auction
Sharon (07/01/2007)
I purchased a hand-signed and numbered Chagall lithograph at an estate auction. It is elaborately framed in a thick and heavy silver and gold gilded frame. I think is called "The Wrestling of Jacob and The Angel". The colors are georgeous. It is signed and numbered 62/500. When I look at the signature with a loop, it has solid lines, and I do not see color dots, so I don't think the signature is printed. Does anyone know who would have reproduced in a series of 500 or where I might go to do further research on it?

Adrian Childs-Clarke (05/12/2007)

Chagall signed copies of his artwork
Herman Darvick (03/13/2007)
Marc Chagall personally signed reproductions of his artwork for autograph collectors. I personally sent him a reproduction of his "Window" at the United Nations; he signed it and sent it back to me from Alpes-Maritimes, France. He also signed numerous lithos removed from artbooks as well as museum postcards for a friend who was, at the time, a wine importer. He had first met Chagall when Chagall designed the 'Chateau Mouton Rothschild' label. They became friends and he visited with the Chagalls many times each year for many years, each time bringing Chagall reproductions to sign, as well as a gift of wine. Chagall signed the reproductions in ink or in crayon, usually black, but white, yellow, or other colors depending upon the lithograph.

Le Verger - Daphnis & Chloe
DJ (10/21/2006)
I bought a piece at auction that I thought was an original litho from Le Verger. It is pencil signed by Chagall and was authenticated by Herman Darvick. I think it is a fake. Does anyone know if Chagall would have ever signed a copy of Le Verger that wasn't an original litho? The size of mine is 18 3/4 x 12 1/2; not even close the original. Any help is appreciated!

Marc Chagall
vikki nicholson (10/05/2006)
I have a lithograph of Chagall's that has a cert. of authenticity on the back that is numbered. It is a rendition of Bouquet with Bowl of Cherries. This print however though nicely framed is only in a faded blue. Not the brilliantly colored versions on the web. There is no indication of color ever being in this. Wonder what the deal is with this. I cannot find one like it on the web. Anyone have any info on this? It is signed in the lower right by Chagall.

Marc Chagall -TILE
john F. Sheehy (08/01/2005)
Does anyone know if Marc Chagall did ANY drawings/ painting with written in French sentiments on regular white kitchen wall tile (4X4) as a thank you / gift for his host/hostess/ friends ?.This was when he was in New York City in the 1940s.

cynthia (11/23/2004)
To whomever might be kind enough to offer your thoughts or knowledge relative to Marc Chagall lithographs: A friend of mine purchased a Chagall piece for me from an estate auction. I do know what the IMAGE is: daphnis dream and the nymphs -- from the daphnis and chloe suite. oddly enough, the particular piece I received has a photograph of the work with a signed/embossed "authentication" affixed to the back. ...the authentication seems to be relative to the authenticity of Chagall's SIGNATURE.... (sorry, I can not remember who the authenticator is, but he seemed to have an impressive resume of related publications and positions) this certificate does not reference the art by title, medium, etc., but simply references the piece as a reproduction of a work of art by Marc Chagall, ....which is in the authenticator's opinion, signed by Marc Chagall. My question relates to exactly "what" the piece of art likely "is." --I mean, is it/could it be a "litho" ...or is it a mass produced "poster," -- etc. I have found online refeference of this lithograph as approximately 15x21." -- the piece I have is not that large, (I would guess it's more like 9 or 10 x 12." does that mean that what I have is some sort of less valuable "poster reproduction" -- or were "real" lithos actually produced in more than one size? The piece is coming from the estate of a man who lives in a $6+ million home and who seems to have an extraordinary collection of other "authenticated" works, such as Dali pieces authenticated by the Dali archives...this is is why I'd have to wonder if he'd own a fairly worthless "reproduction," (although an authenticated signature may add value to "anything.") --also I am not sure if it would have been common practice for Chagall to sign "reproductions." Can anyone offer any thoughts/likely possibilities at all? I would truly appreciate your comments.

Portait of Maria Lani
Brian Cobb (08/30/2003)
In 1928, Mar Chagall was in Paris and painted a portrait of Maria Lani. It was exhibited in an exhibition in Paris in 1930 and a catalogue of the exhibition was published by "Editions des Quatre Chemins". I have a scanned copy of of this portrait from the catalogue if you are interested. I would appreciate any feedback on where to locate this picture or any information about the portrait. Many thanks.
