Notes

“Inspired” by Marc Chagall is a self-portrait of the great artist, depicting him as lost in thought before one of his paintings, which is apparently related to his home country Russia, as suggested by the small figure in the lower right of the work. Chagall’s wife Valentina (“Vava”), who was also from Russia, is looking over his shoulder, full of longing. The small surreal elements that are characteristic of Chagall’s paintings are also present here: the silhouettes of the houses that seems to stick out of the painting and a figure with a flute or trombone standing on its head. This lithograph measures 12.5 inches tall by 9.5 inches wide and was created in 1963 as a part of a bound book. This is from an unsigned edition of 6000, compiled and written by Fernand Mourlot and published by Monte Carlo: A. Sauret as “Chagall Lithographe 1957 – 1962” and is one of 6000 unsigned editions. This piece comes framed in a black semi-gloss contemporary scoop frame and double matted with white linen and glossy black matting.
