Catalogue Note

Chagall’s move to Vence in 1949 saw a corresponding diversity in his choice of medium. Prompted perhaps by Matisse and Picasso whom he saw more frequently, Chagall tried his hand at stained glass, ceramics, engraving and sculpture. He is known to have used stone from the local southern quarries at Rognes and Gard as well as marble from Carrara. These unique sculptures are exceptionally rare and Amoureux au repos is one of a very limited number to have appeared on the market. A small group of marble pieces were included in the 2017 exhibition Chagall sculptures at the Marc Chagall National Museum in Nice.
