Marc Chagall: Painting "Le Violoniste Bleu" (1947)

Shagal’s little serenade: "Le Violoniste Bleu", created in 1947 is one of his most famous pictures and also a great example of his art: the childhood memories of his native city Vitebsk in Russia mixed with romantic motifs from Paris, the city of love. His uncle, who played the violin, inspired Chagall to create the figure of a violinist, who hooves on his stool in the blue sky over the roofs of the village. Under the moon there appears a shining flower bouquet and three little birds play under the flying violinist. The moon floods the scene in silver blue light, while the violinist plays a lovely serenade to the world.

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.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.
