Historical Description

Expressing a sense of peacefulness and solitude, this work is full of detailed and active line work. The two figures on the left appear at rest with serene expressions on their faces, while a large bouquet sits on the right. Brightly colored with purple, red, and green, a yellow bird sits just above the flowers in front of a window. The lyrical quality of this piece reflects the artist's use of dreamlike imagery and bright colors as seen throughout Chagall's work.

Created in 1976, this original lithograph is hand signed by Marc Chagall (Vitebsk, 1887 - Saint-Paul, 1985) in pencil in the lower right margin and numbered from the edition of 50 in pencil in the lower left margin (aside from 12 artist's proofs on Japon numbered in Roman numbers).
