In Le Bouquet jaune Chagall focuses on the vibrant colour of the petals of the bouquet in the lower right, whilst a couple float in the background at upper left. Love and marriage were an important part of the artist’s life, and these romantic themes were a recurring theme in his painting. In 1952, Chagall married his second wife, Valentina (Vava) Brodsky. Although she came from a similar Russian Jewish background as himself, for Chagall Vava was always associated with France, where the two met, and where they lived together until the end of the artist’s life. These highly personal and romantic symbols are harmoniously and joyously combined in the present composition.
