Over his century-spanning career, Mark Chagall managed to achieve a near universal appeal. Daphnis & Chloe, is regarded as his crowning glory and testament to the graphic arts. In fact, by most experts it is considered the single most important and complex color Lithographic undertaking by any artist ever. The unrestricted use of color combined with romantic symbolism establishes this magnificent series of lithographs as a supreme artistic achievement by Chagall.
As part of our winter exhibition for Marc Chagall, Galerie Michael is proud to present two extremely rare trial proofs titled Les Fiances aux deux Bouquets, created in 1963 by Chagall’s hand at the Atelier Mourlot. Printed and mounted on waxed oak,these large folding panels personify the dreamy romanticism of the artist’s golden years in Paris with the love of his life Bella.
