         [Folk Art]: Wooden Scroll Work Patriotic Picture Frame with Photos of American Servicemen

      Very Good. Elaborate scrollwork folk art display which houses photographs of seven American serviceman, presumably all members of the same family, who served in the military during World War II or the Vietnam War. While the servicemen are not identified, the dates of their individual service are written in ballpoint ink on the sides of each image (four during WWII and three from the early stages of the Vietnam War, with the last date being 1966). The patriotic motif encompasses several hand cut elements: an American eagle, several American flags, the motto "God Bless America," and an American patriotic shield or crest, amongst which are seven separate spaces, each containing a photograph of an American serviceman in uniform. All of these elements have been affixed to an elaborately scroll-sawed background piece, which in turn has been affixed to burlap in a homemade shadow box-type frame that has been glazed. It is not clear whether this is a memorial piece or just commemorates the service of various family members. A few small breaks on the scrolled wood background, a couple of the photos show some exposure to light, but overall stable and very good or better. A fascinating patriotic artifact encompassing two generations of American military men.

         Moïse et le buisson ardent] Then the Angel of the Lorde appeared unto him in a flame of fire, out of the middes of a bush; and he looked, and beholde, the bush was not consumed. (Et l'Ange de l'Eternel lui apparut dans une flamme de feu, du milieu d'un buisson, et il regarda, et voici le buisson ne se consumait point.) - The Story of Exodus

      AMIEL Léon 1966 - - AMIEL Léon, Paris, New-York 1966, 36x49.5cm, une feuille. - Lithographie originale en couleur, une des 15 épreuves imprimées sur papier japon impérial et réservées à l'artiste et à ses collaborateurs, seul tirage avec 20 autres japon et 250 Arches. Epreuve non signée, comme toutes les épreuves de cette série, hormis le frontispice. Superbe épreuve sur Japon réalisée spécialement pour The Story of Exodus paru en 1966, dont Chagall réalisa les 24 lithographies hors-texte imprimés par Mourlot. Fernand Mourlot, incontestablement le meilleur artisan lithographe du XXeme siècle, fut naturellement l'imprimeur et l'ami des plus grands artistes de son temps. "Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Miró, Braque, Dubuffet, Léger, Giacometti.ont enrichi leurs expressions propres et l'art contemporain d'un domaine de recherches nouveau. Avec Mourlot, et grâce à lui, la lithographie a acquis à la fois une personnalité et un avenir." (Pierre Cabanne, in Cinquante années de lithographie). Déjà imprimeur des deux volumes de la Bible illustrée par Chagall, Mourlot contribua à la formation de l'artiste à l'art de la lithographie dans les années 1950. C'est à cette époque que Chagall commence en effet à fréquenter l'atelier de Mourlot afin d'apprendre les procédés lithographiques et qu'il se lie d'amitié avec les artisans de l'imprimerie, notamment Charles Sorlier. Ainsi est-ce au sommet de son art que Chagall réalise cette histoire de l'Exode qui coincide avec l'achèvement de son immense travail lithographique et pictural sur la Bible entamé en 1930 à l'initiative d'Ambroise Vollard. Ce Cycle décoratif intitulé Le Message Biblique sera d'ailleurs à l'origine de la création du Musée Marc Chagall, originellement Musée national du message biblique Marc-Chagall. Rarissime épreuve originale imprimée sur Japon, le plus beau papier et le meilleur pour les gravures en couleur. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Original lithograph in colors, one of the 15 proofs printed on Imperial Japan paper and reserved for the artist and his collaborators, one draw with 20 other japan and 250 Arches paper. unsigned Event, as all races in the series except the frontispiece. Superb test of Japan made especially for The Story of Exodus, published in 1966, Chagall painted the 24 lithographs inset printed by Mourlot. Fernand Mourlot, undoubtedly the best artisan lithographer of the twentieth century, was naturally the printer and the friend of the greatest artists of his time. "Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Miró, Braque, Dubuffet, Léger, Giacometti . have enriched their own expressions and contemporary art a new area of ??research. With Mourlot, and thanks to him, lithography has acquired both personality and future. " (Pierre Cabanne, in fifty years of lithography). Already printer of the two volumes of the Bible illustrated by Chagall, Mourlot contributed to the formation of the artist in the art of lithography in the 1950s it was at this time that Chagall indeed begins to attend workshop Mourlot to learn the lithographic processes and he became friends with the artisans of printing, including Charles Sorlier. So is this the top of his game as Chagall realizes this Exodus story that coincides with the completion of his immense lithographic and pictorial work on the Bible began in 1930 at the initiative of Ambroise Vollard. This decorative cycle entitled Biblical Message T will also behind the creation of the Marc Chagall Museum, originally the National Museum of Biblical Message Marc - Chagall. Extremely rare first test printed on Japan, the best paper and the best for color prints. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Folk Art]: Wooden Scroll Work Patriotic Picture Frame with Photos of American Servicemen

      - Elaborate scrollwork folk art display which houses photographs of seven American serviceman, presumably all members of the same family, who served in the military during World War II or the Vietnam War. While the servicemen are not identified, the dates of their individual service are written in ballpoint ink on the sides of each image (four during WWII and three from the early stages of the Vietnam War, with the last date being 1966). The patriotic motif encompasses several hand cut elements: an American eagle, several American flags, the motto "God Bless America," and an American patriotic shield or crest, amongst which are seven separate spaces, each containing a photograph of an American serviceman in uniform. All of these elements have been affixed to an elaborately scroll-sawed background piece, which in turn has been affixed to burlap in a homemade shadow box-type frame that has been glazed. It is not clear whether this is a memorial piece or just commemorates the service of various family members. A few small breaks on the scrolled wood background, a couple of the photos show some exposure to light, but overall stable and very good or better. A fascinating patriotic artifact encompassing two generations of American military men.
