Lovers in the Orange Sun, 1980
Indian ink wash, pastel, Indian ink and watercolour, signed and dated 1980 lower right.
76 x 56 cm
Acquired from the Fabien Boulakia Gallery by the current owner in October 2003.
This work on paper by Marc Chagall takes up several themes that are dear to him and that we find throughout his work: lovers, the rooster and the donkey (a bestiary familiar to this artist who was born in Vitbesk and who spent many periods as a child on his grandparents' farm) but also the characters floating in the air. He used these different themes in his oil paintings as well as in his drawings and watercolours.
A certificate from the Chagall Committee n° 2003060D, dated 9 October 2003, will be given to the buyer.
