Chagall's devotion and innovation to the medium of lithography is legendary. He worked tirelessly in creating one of the most extensive bodies of graphic works ever created in any century. His abilty to create the look and atmosphere of a pastel chalk drawing or a watercolor in lithography advanced the medium to a level that had not existed previously. He was known to devote countless hours to proofing his lithographs and his perfectionism resulted in many works that were never released and some complete editions that were destroyed by his own hand.
Chagall created the drawings for his last lithograph on March 26, 1985 the day of his death. The work was ultimately printed by Charles Sorlier, Chagall's friend, colleage and lithographer less than an hour before he died.
