Book Description André Sauret, Monte-Carlo, 1965. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. First edition. Folio (13 1/8 x 10"). 89, pp. Original acetate cover over illustrated dust-jacket and black-stamped burgundy cloth, with black lettering to spine. Book housed in its publisher's cardboard slipcase. Documenting the process of design and implementation of the painting of Paris Opera ceiling by Marc Chagall, this splendidly produced book contains numerous colored and b/w drawings and sketches, as well as 6 color lithographs, and a 19" x 26" fold-out illustration of the layout of the ceiling in rear pocket. Lassaigne describes in details Chagall's considerations and the evolving steps he took towards achieving the right balance and equivalence between the colorful lightweight palette of his painting on the ceiling and the existing deep red, gold, black and white colors of the floor and the stage. The outcome is a great masterpiece which coincides in harmony with the deep red dim lights of the hall like a bouquet of flowers in bloom.Unfortunately, this copy is lacking its original lithographic frontispiece. Text in French. Slipcase, acetate, dust-jacket, binding and interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 42579
