Les Amoureux au Soleil Rouge

Les Amoureux au Soleil Rouge, 1960 by Marc Chagall is an original Lithograph in colors on Arches paper. This artwork Les Amoureux au Soleil Rouge is an unsigned studio proof aside from the signed artist proofs. Catalouge Raisonee: Mourlot 285

Marc Chagall incorporates numerous artistic styles into his work. Cubism, Fauvism, Symbolism, and Surrealism are often recalled in his pieces in conjunction with his own dreamlike imagery, though he never aligned himself completely with a single artistic movement. The artist also mastered a varied use of mediums from gouache, watercolor, and drawing, to ceramics, etching, murals, and stained-glass work. A Russian-Jew who later moved to France, Chagall often recalls Jewish folklore, dream-like pastorals, and Russian life in his works as well.

Marc Chagall is praised as a pioneer of modern art as one of the greatest figurative painters. He invented a visual language that recorded the thrill and terror of the twentieth century. Chagall is of French-Russian and Jewish heritage, and he lived through the horrors of world wars, revolution and ethnic persecution in Europe between 1914 and 1945. Much of his work is a commentary on his personal connection and disillusionment with this European history. Chagall conveys these messages in a uniquely expressive and dream-like manner.

Honored for his distinct style and pioneering role among Jewish artists, Marc Chagall painted dream-like subjects rooted in personal history and Eastern European folklore. Though he actively engaged in the Parisian artistic community, art for Chagall was first and foremost a means of personal expression. He preferred to be considered separately from other artists, his imagery and allegory uniquely his own.
