Marc Chagall's "L'artiste et l'ange" at Modern Art + Design

The painting "L'artiste et l'ange" was executed in 1982 during a period of stability and harmony at the end of Chagall's life. "L'artiste et l'ange" includes many of the symbols and subjects that Chagall returned to in his oevre; love, religion, dreams and fantasy. In his unconventional world filled with animals, flowers and people we find the bridal couple, the soaring hornblower, the angel, the houses climbing the hill of the village and Christian and Jewish symbols.

Chagall would often return to previous motifs, drawing inspiration and making new interpretations based on memory. In the composition, the artist has seated himself at the easel, working on a canvas depicting the crucifixion, a reference to the artist's important suite of paintings from 1938.
