Jewish Holidays
1969 - Signed/Limited. GROSS, Chaim.The Jewish Holidays.Paris and New York: No publisher, 1969.Signed limited first edition of this suite of color lithographs depicting the Jewish holidays, number 115 of only 200 copies containing 11 magnificent lithographs, each signed and dated by the artist in pencil."Gross is considered among the greatest of 20th-century figurative sculptors, and his graphic work is highly celebrated" (Forum Gallery). "In these lithographs, Gross recaptures the dreams of his childhood so that everyone in a sense may share his experiences. For those to whom this vanished world is mere history, he offers an emotional insight as well as aesthetic pleasure. These festivals live today. Through movement and modeling, which is the particular gift of Chaim Gross, he makes them come alive for modern man" (Soltes). This suite, composed of 13 landscape-oriented loose signatures laid into a portfolio and housed in a clamshell box, includes a title signature with a laid-in color title lithograph, a text-only introductory signature by Rabbi Avraham Soltes, 10 holiday-themed color lithographs each laid into the center of a signature with text by Soltes on the first page, and a signature containing the index and the limitation statement. Increasingly based on his Austrian-Jewish heritage following World War II, Gross’ works are included in the collections of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney, among others. Lithography assistance by Picasso-collaborator Marcel Salinas and typography by Pierre Jean Mathan.Lithographs lovely and fine, scattered soiling to text leaves only. A fine production.
