Marc Chagall´s Poster “Die Zauberflote” May 02 2016
We love it when customers frame their purchases from us and send us a picture!
Here is one of a poster we sold unframed, our customer was nice to send us a picture of the final product, beautifully framed.
Back in 1966, five thousand of these posters were created in France for the Metropolitan Opera. They depict part of the mural by Russian painter Marc Chagall (1887-1985) at the (then) recently inaugurated Met Opera at the Lincoln Center. Chagall even created a production of Die Zauberflote (The Magic Flute) for the Met.
In any case, these original posters are nowadays highly collectible and sought-after by collectors, there are originals from the 1966 lithographs and high quality re-prints made in 1973 that sell for a bit less. We currently have in stock one of these Zauberflote posters, signed by Marc Chagall himself - please inquire if interested.
