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.

Description

Marc Chagall La Femme du Peintre is an original lithograph that is signed in pencil lower right and annotated “Epreuve d’Artiste” in the lower left.  It is the Artist Proof aside from the edition of 50. This artwork is an excellent example of the artist’s fluid style and wide use of color. Mourlot 630.

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.

Upon Chagall’s return to France in 1947, Marc Chagall found himself under the guidance of master printer Charles Sorlier at Mourlot Freres Atelier—a well known Parisian lithography studio. The partnership between Marc Chagall and Sorlier was extremely fruitful, and Chagall created over 1000 original lithographs at the Mourlot studio. During this time Chagall completed many lithographic series including The Bible,The Story of Exodus, The Circus, Daphnis and Chloe and The Odyssey. Often Mark Chagall would travel to foreign countries for inspiration and Chagall used up to 25 different lithographic plates per print to achieve the perfect expression of color. Chagall’s mastery as a colorist was noted by Pablo Picasso who said “When Matisse dies, Marc Chagall will be the only painter left who understands what color really is”.

Marc Chagall died at his Saint Paul de Vence home in March 1985 at the age of 97. Marc Chagall was considered a highly regarded, decorated and exhibited artist.

“In our life there is a single color, as on an artist’s palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love.” – Marc Chagall
