Description: "King with Harp (Purple)" by Marc Chagall, Unsigned Framed Lithograph. Paper size is 11.5 x 8.25 inches, with an image size of 11.5 x 8.25 inches. The Framed Lithograph is from an unknown edition size. and is currently framed. The condition was rated A: Mint. Additional details: Framed in a Rustic Gold with Beeding Wood Frame with a Light Linen over Cream Mat. Printed on Japon paper, unsigned. Due to the deeply religious nature of some of Chagall's work, it could be assumed that the king with the harp depicted here is a representation of King David of the Old Testament. King David was attributed with the creation of many of the psalms contained within the book of psalms. Seventy-three of the 150 psalms in the Bible are attributed to King David, one of the Dead Sea Scrolls (11QPsa) attributes 3600 tehilim (songs of praise) plus other compositions to him. Nevertheless, there is no hard evidence for Davidic authorship of any of them. The psalms use the poetic device of parallelism which develops an idea by the usage of repetition, synonyms, and opposites.
