Marc Chagall's immigration letters & self portrait to be offered at Guernsey's
The original self-portrait by Chagall executed in watercolor and pen-and-ink is found on the cover page of Chagall’s Peintures 1942 -1945 along with autograph inscription: “Pour General et Mrs. Troper, Amicalement, Marc Chagall. Vence, 1951. Chagall’s Peintures 1942 – 1945 contains an introduction by Paul Eluard, with a poem by Leon Degand. The book is comprised of six pages of text and 12 plates with color reproductions of paintings laid onto sheets, loose as issued. Original color-pictorial portfolio, 11” x 15” inches, torn at spine.

NEW YORK, NY.- Though limited to a few select lots, the auction will give bidders the opportunity to purchase a collection of remarkable letters written by Marc Chagall during and after the Holocaust, seeking to immigrate to the United States, along with a rare self-portrait of Chagall. The auction will take place at the historic Fifth Avenue Synagogue on September 19, 2019.

Other lots in the auction include a historic collection of documents that outline the future of the new Israeli State as envisioned by the 37 members of Israel’s Provisional Council (Moetzet Haam). Each of the council’s thirty-five men and two women eventually signed the scroll that would act as the Israeli Declaration of Independence. Signatures include those of David Ben-Gurion and Golda Meir.

Also present will be an archive of personal correspondence from Israeli military leader Moshe Dayan, a close friend of David Ben-Gurion and symbol of strength for the emerging Israeli State. The archive comprises of letters written by the 25-year-old future General while imprisoned by the British (1939-1941), revealing his most inner thoughts of what was happening around him.

Included in the collection is a truly singular audio piece: a never-before-heard recording of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King addressing an audience at County Hall in Charleston on July 30, 1967, less than a year before his death. Within the speech, he speaks of the injustices of wealth distribution and white supremacy plaguing the nation, subjects that are once again timely in discussions of the United States. The Martin Luther King address will come in conjunction with the Sony recorder that was used to tape it.
