Marc Chagall was born in Vitebsk, Belarus, in 1887. This limited edition lithograph marked the unveiling of his beloved Four Seasons mosaic in downtown Chicago. The mosaic depicts fantasy views of Chicago, employing the artist’s signature imagery of fish, birds, flowers, suns, and pairs of lovers, created out of thousands of tiny inlaid colored chips of glass and stone. The project was funded by William Wood Prince, chairman of meatpacking giant Armour & Co, and his wife Eleanor, a friend of Chagall’s.
