About the Art

This is an original photocolor on paper by renowned artist Marc Chagall. It is part of a series of sketches that were turned into prints that the artist completed as studies for set designs and costumes for several theatrical productions. Fusing his own personal, dreamlike imagery with hints of the Fauvism and Cubism, this piece exhibits the essence of Marc Chagall’s style. This piece is framed in a contemporary style fluted gold moulding with off white matboard.

Marc Chagall was a versatile artist who worked in almost every medium. In his work, he fused multiple artistic styles with symbols from his Jewish heritage.
