Fine Art/Numbered Chagall print


My husband bought a framed Chagall print decades ago, that is numbered, in pencil, "92/375."  It has two lovers towards the bottom with a red bull, and another woman to the right, in white.  How do we know if it is a lithograph?  Does it have a name?  Does it have any value?

Hi Linda, your description of two lovers and a red bull covers about half of Chagalls works! What we need to do is compare the image to those in Chagall's catalog raisonnÚs to figure out which piece you own. It may be a reproduction worth very little, or it may be an original lithograph worth thousands. One of the easiest ways to tell something might be a lithograph is the plate mark (an indentation) around the edge of the image that is created when the paper was pressed onto the stone. So send me an image and I can give you a better answer or at least point you in the right direction.
