Exemplifying Chagall's immense skill as a colorist, Marc Chagall Roses et Mimosa (Roses and Mimosa), 1975 is one of the artist's most striking and vibrant color lithographs. A luscious bouquet of bright red-pink roses and purple and yellow mimosas envelops the composition, delighting the eye with its beauty and splendor. The mimosa, one of Chagall's favorite flowers, is delineated through Chagall's soft, dreamlike lines and splashes of eye-catching, saturated color. In his signature style, Chagall transports the viewer to a place of carefree fancy, a place full of relaxation and joy. Beneath the monumental bouquet of roses and mimosas, a mother and child rest as if lounging in the shade of a tree. We can almost imagine ourselves at their side in this maternal scene, enjoying the pleasant, sunny weather and the aromatic smell of fresh-cut flowers.
