Marc Chagall: Painting "Nude at the Window" (1953/54)

An anthem to the happiness of human harmony - the "Nube on the Window" by Marc Chagall.

in 1952 Marc Chagall married to Valentina Brodsky. Together, they travel to Greece, where on the island of Paros he finds a place for sheltered rest and intensive work on the cycle "Daphnis and Chloé," published in 1960. In this beautiful lithograph from 1953, Marc Chagall shows an intimate scene full of affection and familiarity. In contrast to Chagall's well-known colorful works, "The Nude at the Window" is decorated in grisaille, which intensifies the volatility of the moment. The soft, clear tone conveys an interior full of natural light and warmth, in which two lovers hold each other intimately entwined. Both merge into each other and are caught up in the moment. The bowl full of fruit next to the two points to the opulence of the nature of the South and at the same time expresses erotic symbolism.

In this sheet, that was issued in the limited edition of only 75 pieces at Moulot in Paris, Chagall created a charming picture of love, connected with a homage to the sunny landscape of Greece.

Marc Chagall was born in Vitebsk, Belorussia in 1887. He began his work in the Pen workshops in Vitebsk in 1906 and Bakst in St. Petersburg in 1907. He travelled to Paris in 1911 where his encounters with the Avant-Gardists were decisive. In 1914, the first exhibition of monographs was organized in Berlin before his return to Vitebsk. Chagall became Public Superintendent of Fine Arts and founded an art school. The painter left Russia definitively in 1923 and moved to Paris where he developed a personal style that demonstrated the marriage of iconography and Jewish, Russian and French culture. Upon his return in 1948 from self-imposed exile in the United States during World War II, Chagall became one of the greatest artists of the 20th Century - a marvellous colorist and story teller - until his death in 1985 at Saint-Paul, France.
