Marc Chagall’s Spectacle of Color

New York | 15 May

Toward the end of his nearly century-long life, Marc Chagall could still hear the music of his childhood, see the farmland of his hometown, and perhaps most importantly, still feel the embrace of his first wife Bella. The artist continued to create until the day he died, rendering these vivid memories across a variety of media. In this episode of Anatomy of an Artwork, discover his late work Coq et femme à l'éventail. Rich hues of blue, green, yellow and red bring his intricately painted figures to life and allow the viewer to feel Chagall’s sentimentality and nostalgia. Packed with the distinctive blend of intimacy and complexity the artist is famous for, Coq et femme à l'éventail will be offered as a highlight of Sotheby’s Impressionist and Modern Art Day sale.
