“As with all the greatest of his contemporaries, Chagall’s genius is multiform. He is first of all a painter, but like Matisse, Derain, Braque and Picasso, he has sought other means of expression besides painting. They have all found these means in sculpture, ceramics, stained glass, engraving and lithography ... The most brilliant effects, however, have probably been produced in the field of engraving and lithography." –Julien Cain, introductory essay
