About

The Angel is an original Contemporary Artwork realized by Marc Chagall (Vitebsk, 1887 – Saint-Paul-de-Vence, 1985) in 1982. Original color lithograph on buff paper. Plate Dimensions: 31.5 x 23.5 cm. Total Dimensions: 58.5 x 49.5 cm. Framed in a passe-partout and behind glass. Reference: Mourlot, No. 288. Excellent conditions. Marc Chagall (Vitebsk, 1887 – Saint-Paul-de-Vence, 1985) in 1982. Chagall was born in a small Russian city to a Jewish family of modest origins. In 1917, he joined the October Revolution and started painting murals and the curtain for the Jewish Art Theater. In the following years, he dedicated his time to still lifes with flowers and objects, and a series of beautiful engravings, demonstrate a more intelligent use of the middle technique and an increased sensitivity to color. These figurative compositions are denser, and less of a “sketch or outline”. At that same time, he exhibited his works in New York, Amsterdam and Basel. In 1946, Chagall created his first color lithographs as illustrations for the book A Thousand and One Night for a New York editor. From this moment on, he dedicated his time almost exclusively to lithography techniques. In 1959, Chagall received an honoris causa degree at the University of Glasgow. Marc Chagall returned to Europe in 1946, arriving in Paris. In 1947, he finished The Falling Angel (1923-1947), which had been in the works for almost 25 years. Begun only a short time after Chagall's emigration from the Soviet Union, it is, in a way, a unified artistic statement for these years, expanded and built upon as Chagall's art developed. It combines Biblical and Torah lore with the modern world and with Chagall's personal symbolism in a juxtaposition of images that attempt to summarize the many experiences the artist had over the course of his work on the painting.

About the Artist

Marc Chagall

Described by art critic Robert Hughes as "the quintessential Jewish artist of the twentieth century," the Russian-French modernist Marc Chagall worked in nearly every artistic medium. Influenced by Symbolism, Fauvism, Cubism and Surrealism, he developed his own distinctive style, combining avant-garde techniques and motifs with elements drawn from Eastern European Jewish folk art.Born Moishe Segal in 1887, in Belarus (then part of the Russian empire), Chagall is often celebrated for his figurative paintings, but he also produced stained-glass windows for the cathedrals of Reims and Metz, in France; for the United Nations, in New York; and for the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, as well as book illustrations, stage sets, ceramics, tapestries and fine-art prints. Characterized by a bold color palette and whimsical imagery, his works are often narrative, depicting small-village scenes and quotidian moments of peasant life, as in his late painting The Flight into Egypt from 1980.Before World War I, Chagall traveled between St. Petersburg, Paris and Berlin. When the conflict broke out, he returned to Soviet-occupied Belarus, where he founded the Vitebsk Arts College before leaving again for Paris in 1922. He fled to the United States during World War II but in 1947 returned to France, where he spent the rest of his life. His peripatetic career left its mark on his style, which was distinctly international, incorporating elements from each of the cultures he experienced. Marc Chagall remains one of the past century’s most respected talents — find his art on 1stDibs.
