Marc Chagall: Painting “The Three Candles” (1938-40)

Chagall moved together with his family to Provence, to find peace and security in the south of France during the war. Here he completed the picture “The Three Candles”: the love, symbolized by the wedding couple, suspended in the skies, gets the victory over all the fears and disorders. The candles as the symbol of faith and hope radiate the warm light while the dark angel puts a cover on the world. The expressive color lithograph was reproduced in 20 colors after the Chagall oil painting in the studio Tête à Tête, Paris. This is a real masterpiece for experts and collectors.

Color lithograph, made after the original, which itself is in private ownership now. Limited edition of 450copies. Printed with stone in 20 colors on the 290 g handmade paper, which was prepared especially for this edition. ©ADAGP 2000 Marc Chagall. Marc Chagall’s signature and a seal of the ADAGP, Paris, in relief stamping. Picture opening 50 x 70 cm. Elaborate model frame with a mat. Dust-protective glazing. Format 67 x 84 cm.

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.
