A picturesque scene captivates the viewer as memories flood back of a summer once enjoyed in such a magical place. Standing before a large basket of sumptuous fruit, a mother and child share a private moment. This imagery brings to mind thoughts of both abundance and fertility. With its warm hues and soft, swirling lines, this work conveys a feeling of tranquility and ease. The Large Basket perfectly exemplifies Chagall's expressive definition of form and volume as well as his adept understanding of color, contributing a sense of warmth and comfort to the space in which it is placed.
Created in 1975, this work is hand signed by Marc Chagall (Vitebsk, 1887 - Saint-Paul, 1985) in pencil in the lower right margin and numbered 2/50 in pencil in the lower left margin.
