MARC CHAGALL (1887-1985) 
Russian-born French painter

Russian-French artist associated with several major artistic styles and is considered one of the most successful artists of the 20th century. He was an early modernist and created works in virtually every artistic medium, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints. Receiving many prizes and much recognition for his work, Chagall is one of the very few artists who has had his work exhibited at the Louvre during his lifetime.

The circus and its performers provided Chagall with great inspiration. In this typewritten note, dated 1967, Chagall discusses his thoughts on circus performers saying, "I have always thought of clowns, acrobats and actors as tragically human beings who, for me, are like characters in certain religious paintings." He delves further into the comparison saying "Even today, when I paint a crucifixion or some other religious scene, I experience almost the same emotions I used to feel painting circus people. And yet, there is nothing literary in these paintings, and it is very hard to explain why I find a psycho-plastic resemblance between the two kinds of work."

This highly introspective look into the artist's mind is boldly signed in artist's crayon, "Marc Chagall." $895.00
