Historical Description

Quoted as saying, “The sun of art shone only in Paris. It seemed to me then, as it still does, that there can be no greater revolution of the eye than that I experienced on my arrival in Paris,” Chagall beautifully expresses this in the composition before you. As a couple floats above a canvas of the Eiffel Tower in powerful colors of green and red, Chagall creates a captivating piece.

Created in 1957, this color lithograph is hand-signed by Marc Chagall (Vitebsk, 1887 - Saint-Paul, 1985) in pencil in the lower right and is numbered from the edition of 90 in pencil in the lower left.
