Jerusalem, Israel, July 08, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Jerusalem Publishing Atelier is proud to publish, for the first time ever, a rare art collection based on the up-close and personal pictures of Marc Chagall, captured by Israel’s legendary photographer, David Rubinger, as he followed the Jewish master artist during his visits to Jerusalem during the 1960’s and 1970’s while working and completing his masterpiece for the Israeli Knesset. This momentous offering will allow a fortunate few to become a part of this history, celebrating both Marc Chagall, whose artwork needs no introduction, and David Rubinger, whose award-winning photograph of the three paratroopers immortalized at the Western Wall in Jerusalem as the 1967 war came to an end, is instantly recognizable. It is a remarkable opportunity to be part of history: the history of art, the personal history of two masters in their respective fields, and the long history of the Holy City of Jerusalem.
The Chagall-Rubinger project is a unique opportunity to collect a limited-edition of museum quality prints portraying never-before-released collection of images of Marc Chagall at work and traveling in Jerusalem in the 1960’s and 70’s. The distinctiveness of the offering – and its clear connection to the land of the bible – is of inherent value in and of itself. The significance of the exceptional-quality prints is further magnified by the collection of hand-written signature of David Rubinger, a world-renowned photographer and artist of his own right. www.chagallinisrael.com
