Lipton Fine Arts presents works by Marc Chagall

December 5, 2014 - January 31, 2015

Lipton Fine Arts will present works by Marc Chagall through January 2015. The exhibition includes lithographic posters by Chagall from Israel, Germany, France, England and the U.S.

Gary Lipton of Lipton Fine Arts searched for over a year for Chagall posters signed and printed on the presses of Fernand Mourlot in Paris for a his latest Ketchum exhibition.

“All the posters have come from affiliations with the Mourlot printing house,” Lipton said. “They’re all courteously signed.”

Lipton said Chagall would go to a museum show or his dealers, which had posters and he would sign them when asked. After World War II, there appeared to be a renewed interest in posters with posters being commercial or artistic.

Considered special, these rare lithographs are not paintings. They are one of the many mediums revealing the incredible versatility of Chagall.

“Chagall is one of the most pivotal artist of our lifetime,” Lipton said. “He worked in oils on canvas, watercolor, mosaics, ceramics—every medium possible. He was widely popular throughout Europe and the U.S. He was and still is a mystical figurehead. It’s the color, floating figures… it’s his roosters and lovers’ embraces.”

Located on 4th Street next to the Coffee Grinder in Ketchum, Lipton Fine Arts not only sells and collects contemporary art by Modern Masters such as works by Jim Dine, Alexander Calder, Robert Motherwell, Saul Steinberg and Jean Dubuffet, the gallery also sells antique furniture, America Indian art, organic dyed oriental rugs, Navajo classic blankets and American art pottery. Works from Lipton Fine Arts can also be seen at the Knob Hill Inn dining room in Ketchum, which is a combination of Annie Leibovitz photographs and Calder works on paper.

The Four Seasons (1974) by Marc Chagall at Lipton Fine Arts. Original lithograph signed, numbered, and printed at Mourlot, Paris at Lipton Fine Arts was a poster created for the unveiling of a large mosaic of Chagall, The Four Seasons, commissioned for a public place in the city of Chicago.

André Malraux commissioned Chagall, then the Cabinet Minister in charge of Cultural Affairs, to decorate the Paris Opera ceiling. He painted canvases, which were pasted upon the ceiling. Supposedly, this work was a gift to Paris because Chagall did not accept compensation.
