          After returning to Paris from Russia in 1923, Chagall based many of his new works on previous versions made in Russia in the intervening years. In this print, based on a work from 1917, a winged angel appears to an artist as he sits at his easel. It is characteristic of the artist’s dreamlike, fantastical imagery, which were often inspired by dreams.

          Artist details

          Born in 1887 in Vitebsk, formerly a city in eastern Russia (now in Belarus), to a traditional Jewish family, Marc Chagall is one of the most popular artists of the twentieth century. Although he moved to Paris in his twenties – then the epicenter of modernist art – where he briefly experimented with fauvism and cubism, he remained largely independent of any movement or group. He forged a remarkably distinctive style that married figurative and narrative elements, developing his own unique repertoire of dreamlike imagery. His paintings were deeply personal and charged with emotion, drawing on his childhood in Vitebsk, Russian folklore and his Jewish identity.
