catalog card

An artist attentive to the avant-garde trends of his time, such as Fauvism, Cubism and Surrealism, Chagall devoted himself to ceramics from the late 1940s in the South of France. As in the painting, the artist’s sensitivity in narrating a dream world suspended between reality and fantasy can be felt in the ceramics. The theme is one of the artist’s favourites: the female figure.
