Catalogue raisonnéDirect access to searchDirect access to search
The official Marc Chagall catalogue raisonné is an online scientific project headed by the Society of Friends of Marc Chagall. Its aim is to list works by the artist created between 1906 and 1985. The catalogue increases recognition and access to Chagall’s body of work by providing exhaustive information about the art and techniques used to create each piece, in collaboration with the Comité Marc Chagall and the Marc and Ida Chagall Archive.
The Marc Chagall critical catalogue is the result of research based on archives and a detailed study of the correspondence, administrative documents and photo albums of the artist’s works. It identifies those created by the artist throughout his career, as an extension of the initial selective catalogue compiled by Franz Meyer and published in 1961.
The catalogue raisonné is organized by technique (ceramics, costumes, mosaics, paintings, sculptures, tapestries, stained glass, works on paper) and the works are ordered chronologically. A catalogue raisonné number is assigned to each work listed.
Information relating to ownership, origin, exhibits, and bibliography is subject to change. Any additional information that could be used to update the data may be addressed to the critical catalogue’s scientific team.
