Souvenance d’un Printemps (M. 1019)

Souvenance d’un Printemps, 1983 by Marc Chagall is an original Lithograph in colors on Arches paper. This piece is a rare studio proof printed aside from the signed and numbered edition of 50. Souvenance d’un Printemps can be found in Catalogue Raisonee: Mourlot 1019.

Marc Chagall is a Russian-French and Jewish artist well known for his sensitive and expressive works. In 1910 Chagall moved to Paris, and many consider his work during his four-year stay there his most boldly creative. The artist directly references Paris in his scenes of the Eiffel tower, and covertly displays his dissolution with Europe through his portrayal of whimsical acrobats. Chagall used many mediums and artistic styles in his work, creating a narrative that is unlike that of the mainstream period of cubism which was prevalent during the height of his career.

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.
