Marc Chagall Le Peintre devant le Village II is an original signed Lithograph in colors, on Arches paper. Annotated ‘H.C.’ (hors commerce) by Charles Sorlier lower left and signed by Chagall lower right. Aside from the regular edition of 50. Le Peintre devant le Village II Catalogue Raisonné is Mourlot 604.

Artist Marc Chagall was born on July 7, 1887, in Vitebsk, Russia, to a close knit Jewish family. Chagall’s artworks have been praised as having a major impact on Surrealism, and contain elements of the Cubist, Orphism and Fauvist movements. Chagall’s art is characterized by imagery drawn from the quaint Jewish village in which Marc Chagall was raised. The animals of his childhood, strong family heritage, Jewish faith, and the vitality of Paris are the major themes in Chagall’s art. In all of Chagall’s paintings, lithographs, and etching these first impressions create unique autobiographical images that included floating lovers, massive bouquets of joyful flowers, the gentle horse or cow, the watchful rooster, and the merriment of the circus.

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.
