Ambroise Vollard in 1931 commissioned Chagall to execute 105 etchings for an edition of the Bible and Chagall etched the plates from 1931 to 1939. Due to WWII and the death of Vollard in 1939 the book edition was not published till 1956 by Teriade who had bought the plates and etchings printed from the estate of Vollard. The numberdd, signed and watercoloured editon was published separately in 1958.

Virginia Haggard describes in her book My Life With Chagall, how their house had Bible etdhings spread out all over, because Chagall insisted on handcolouring all the Bible etchings personally (which was a bit unusual at the time). Many of them were coloured with only one colour but Pothiphars Wife is extensively handcoloured in several colours. Chagall h used his own features for the portrait of Joseph, making it also to a kind of selfportrait
