In Chagall Femme pres de la fenetre (Woman by a Window), 1964, with delicacy and emotion, Chagall portrays an unaccompanied woman gazing into the Parisian landscape. Flooded with dewy light, we peer with our subject as she stares out into daybreak. Hazy blues wash the dreamlike scene as she faces a window opening to a lustrous bouquet of vibrant blossoms. The overlay of blue over the whole composition creates a dawn atmosphere, and the brilliant flowers are somewhat subdued by the early morning light. With gracefully posed hands, her gesture denotes feelings of awe as she marvels Paris, the city of light and love. Emanating with presence and expression, Chagall’s use of symbolism and color reverberate with sentiment and love, themes that carry throughout his most cherished pieces.
