about Le Berger et son Troupeau

Marc Chagall, Russian (1887 - 1985) - Le Berger et son Troupeau.

Portfolio: Des Fables De La Fontaine, Year: 1927-1930, Medium: Etching on Lana, signed and dated in the plate, Image Size: 11.5 x 10.25 inches, Size: 15 x 11.75 in. (38.1 x 29.85 cm), Printer: Maurice Potin, Paris, France, Publisher: Teriade, Paris, France 1952, Reference: Cramer 22; Sorlier p. 46; V&A 79, Description: Parisian publisher Ambroise Vollard first commissioned Chagall to design book illustrations for a deluxe edition of Jean de la Fontaine's "Fables" in 1926. In this etching, Chagall interprets a fable by the Italian writer Abstemius (c. 1440-1508), which tells of a shepherd who harangues his flock to stand as one against a ravenous wolf. Though they pledge to stand and fight, nature prevails and the flock flees at the first sight of the wolf's shadow. Abstemius ends his tale by comparing the fleeing animals with "craven soldiers" who lose their fighting spirit at the first sound of battle. From the collection of the late Larry Saphire.

About The Medium: Etching

The printing process of using strong acid or mordant to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design in intaglio (incised) in the metal. In traditional pure etching, a metal (usually copper, zinc or steel) plate is covered with a waxy ground which is resistant to acid. The artist then scratches off the ground with a pointed etching needle where they want a line to appear in the finished piece, exposing the bare metal. The plate is then put through a high-pressure printing press together with a sheet of paper (often moistened to soften it). The paper picks up the ink from the etched lines, making a print.
