Catalogue Note

The artist at work is a motif that recurs frequently in Chagall’s oeuvre, and he pursued it with vigor in his later years. By the time he executed Le Peintre et son modèle, Chagall had much to reflect on: Russia remained at the forefront of his mind—even more so following his emotional visit during the previous decade after an absence of over fifty years—yet at the same time he had been happily settled in Vence for many years. Commanding widespread acclaim, Chagall could reflect in comfort on his artistic success, a position consolidated in the 1970s by the opening of the Musée national message biblique Marc Chagall in Nice in 1973 and by the presentation of the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor in 1977.
