Chagall's Psalms of David

Psaumes de David.
Geneva: Gerald Cramer, 1979.

Illustrated by Marc Chagall – Text and typography by Fequet-Baudier – Etchings printed by Lacourière et Frélaut – Binding by Duval Atelier

In the fall of 1978 Marc Chagall (1887–1985) created original copperplate etchings printed on ochre aquatint. Each image appears facing the text that inspired it, selected from a translation by the Benedictine monks of Saint-Lambert-des-Bois, published in Paris by Éditions Desclée de Brouwer in 1973. Printed in an edition of one hundred seventy-five on Vélin d’Arches paper, this copy, number 36, is signed by the artist.
