"Chagall's first colour lithographs had been drawn whilst he was in New York but it was in the stimulating atmosphere of the Mourlot studio, where Picasso had found such inspiration from 1945, that Chagall's real pleasure in the medium of colour lithography came to full fruition in the years from the beginning of the 1950's." (Weston)

During the 1950s the renowned French printer, Mourlot Freres, printed most of the "original" posters created by the contemporary masters, Picasso, Chagall, Braque, Matisse, Miro, Leger, and Dufy.
