Review, 12/10/03 Rhythm Section (an entertainment guide jointly produced by the Wisconsin State Journal and the Capital Times)
Chagall has long been interested in music and has considered the subject in painting, scenery, the Paris Opera House Ceiling, paintings and backdrops for Lincoln Center, and in many works of art on paper. The fluidity of movement in dance, the very movements within music and within the audience that listens to it, all of these evoke in Chagall something of a sense of his own art and something of the joy that music evokes in and for him.
Daphnis et Chloe (M. 222). Original color lithograph, 1960. 3000 unsigned impressions for XXe Siecle n. 14. Chagall's lithographs illustrating the story of Daphnis and Chloe are among his most famous and most desired lithographs. This work was published in advance of the 1960 portfolio as a kind of teaser. Rich intense colors help this piece to make its presence known. Image size: 315x258mm. Price: $2500.
Le Ballet: Daphnis et Chloe (M. 581). Original color lithograph, 1969. 10,000 unsigned impressions for Marc Chagall : Le Ballet. One of Chagall's more joyful explorations of the theme of Daphnis and Chloe, the innocent young lovers whose adventures Chagall repeatedly rehearses. Image size: 325x258mm. Price: $1,275.
Sketch for The Firebird. Color lithograph after a gouache, 1965. Edition unknown (c. 2500? impressions) for the deluxe publication, Le Plafond de L'Opera de Paris).
