Marc Chagall Sirène au poète (Siren with Poet) from Nice and the Côte d'Azur, 1967 is a quintessential work by Chagall. The composition centers around the hanging poet and siren, who hold each other so that their forms merge into one. Royal blue palm trees and flowers bloom in the dusk beneath them, the ocean reflecting a crimson moon back to its counterpart in the sky. Pastel skies of blue, green, and beige illuminate the couple as they drift above the beach, lost in each other’s gaze. Combining figurative elements with a bisected, geometric green and blue sunset, the twinned peers of birds, couples and moons multiply this sense of oneness, where each element finds its mirror.
Created in 1967, this color lithograph is from Chagall's Nice series and the Côte d'Azur, comprising twelve color lithographs. It is hand signed by Marc Chagall (Vitebsk, 1887 - St. Paul, 1985) in pencil in the lower right margin and is numbered from the edition of 150 in pencil in the lower left margin.
