Marc Chagall

1887 - 1985

Nature morte devant la fenêtre


signed Marc Chagall and dated Vence 1953 (lower right)

brush and ink and wash on paper

62.5 by 47.8cm., 24⅝ by 18¾in.

Framed: 81.4 by 66.5cm., 32 by 26¼in.

Executed in Vence in 1953.


The authenticity of this work has kindly been confirmed by the Comité Chagall.

Executed on cream laid paper, not laid down, and hinged to the mount in two places along the upper edge. The left, right, and lower edges are slightly deckled. The sheet is slightly time-stained and there is some pale discolouration to all four corners, and to the centre of the lower and left edges, which corresponds to old adhesive mounting tabs on the reverse. There is a small approx. 1cm-long repaired tear to the upper left corner. There are tape remnants along all four edges of the verso from previous mounting, which protrudes beyond the edges of the sheet. This work is in overall very good condition.
