Marc Chagall Femme au Bouquet (Woman with Bouquet) from Nice and the Côte d'Azur, 1967 is a vibrant and enchanting piece. A collaboration between Chagall and Charles Sorlier, this work is part of a set of 12 lithographs from the series Nice and the Côte d'Azur that was run in 1967.
Entrenched in a beautiful orange glow, the woman holding her bouquet in this composition radiates with warmth and serenity capturing the feel of the Mediterranean. Beautifully inundated with a brilliant, orange glow, Femme au Bouquet could be considered one of the richest of the Nice and the Côte d'Azur series. The incredibly complex and varied color compositions explode from the work, while the bright greens of the bouquet contrast nicely with the oranges and reds. A simply captivating work that soothes the eye and soul, Chagall almost outdoes his own masterful skills in this ode to the majestic Mediterranean locations.
