Chagall’s belief in the affinity between painting and dreaming is reflected beautifully in the present work. Associating the color blue with joy, he celebrates this tender remembrance of his wife. Even in grief, Chagall continued to be fueled by love. More than a decade after the completion Les Amourex au clair de lune he reflected, “Is it not true that painting and color are inspired by love? It is our duty to color our own lives with shades of love and hope… In art, as in life, all is possible when conceived in love” (quoted in Pierre Provoyeur, Marc Chagall, New York, 1964, n.p.).
