Executed shortly before Chagall's death in 1983, Le Peintre dans son village is a highly introspective work in which a parade of the most recognizable motifs from the artist's career are juxtaposed, as if stepping onto the stage for one final bow before the curtains descend at the end of a long, scintillating performance. Horses, figures, lovers, acrobats and other characters that feature prominently in Chagall's oeuvre all appear to float and dance above a village, undoubtedly a reference to Vitebsk, the Eastern European town in which Chagall was born and spent much of his childhood. At the center of this metaphorical stage is the artist himself, depicted in the foreground with his gaze fixed upon the viewer, his hands gesturing to the cast of characters behind him.

Self portraiture was a recurring theme throughout Chagall's career, and the artist's explorations of the subject rank among some of the most imaginative and varied in the history of twentieth-century art. Inevitably, however, it is self portraits completed toward the end of this career which offer an especially poignant perspective into the artist's mind and soul (see fig. 1).
