Abstract
This shorter of the two volumes contains Gauthier's essay "Les vibrations multicolores du noir et blanc" and a catalogue of the works illustrated in the larger hardbound volume. Gauthier's essay helped me get closer to understanding the relationship between the gouaches first displayed and sold in 1930 and the black-and-white etchings first done in the 20's but only published in 1952. I gather that the gouaches were a work-up, a prelude, to the etchings, which were ready at that time for publication, but Ambroise Vollard was somehow not up to the task and then died. There are pleasing photographs of the Chagall family with Vollard. On the cover is the gouache of "The Partridge and the Roosters." On the cover of the box is the gouache of "Two Pigeons."
