Question
Dear Mr. Evans:
I have a Marc Chagall print titled- Abraham et les trois agnes-Abraham and the three angels. The print is copyrighted by A.D.G.P & Braun  et cie 1973--this information is on the front bottom of the print. On the back of the print is the following information:
Marc Chagall (1877)
Abraham et les trois anges
Musee National Message Biblique Marc Chagall, Nice
Cliche Musees Nationaux
No. 2267
Les Editions Braun, Paris

Graphic Arts Unlimited, Inc. New York
Soho Gallery, London

There is also the letter B with a circle around it.

The print is 9 1/2"  by  11 1/2".

Any information you may have is greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Answer
You have all the information on the work as it is printed directly on the piece which is very convenient but that also unfortunately means that the Chagall you have is a reproduction and is worth little as the work is not hand-signed or numbered.

Braun and A.D.G.P specialize in reproductions of art, and you can browse Braun's site here, http://www.editionsbraun.fr/fr/catalogue/ . Les Editions Braun, Paris was the printer, Graphic Arts Unlimited, Inc. New York was the publisher, and Soho Gallery must have sold them to accompany a Chagall show. Hopefully that helps.
