Galerie Maeght, Paris
Acquired by the family of the present owners on May 4, 1966
By this point in his life, Chagall enjoyed much international success and recognition and was living in the hilly countryside of Saint-Paul-de Vence with his wife Vava. Le bouquet des amoureux sur fond bleu represents the artist's tranquil disposition and the beauty that he found in his surroundings and offers insight into his personal history. The flowers of the bouquet are magnificently oversized compared with the figures, which conveys to the viewer a sense of abundance and whimsy, while the thickly painted electric red, pink, and yellow of the petals gives the work a brilliant energy.
