Marc Chagall Les Adolescents (The Adolescents), 1975 is perhaps one of Chagall's finest lithographs. Vibrantly colored and expertly composed, this piece, aptly entitled, The Adolescents captures the bliss and of young love. Gazing at each other with absolute adoration, a young couple embraces in the center of the composition. Both figures are dressed in vibrant garbs, the woman in red and the man in teal. They appear as if standing in a field of tall shrubbery, in a remote area with no cityscape in sight. Chagall creates a circular motion, surrounding the couple with an array of joyous figures. A translucent blue figure dives down from the top while a mother holds her child to the lower right. In the upper right corner, the moon and sun overlap in a whimsical eclipse as a rooster and horse look on from the left.
Created in 1975, this color 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.
