Commonly accepted as Chagall’s most stunning printed work, this monumental composition offers the viewer vivid colors and poignant imagery, awarding this piece a life and vigor of its own. Created in 1967, this work was inspired by a performance of Mozart’s The Magic Flute in which he created the sets and costume shown on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera House of New York. It is one of the few artist-signed examples out of the 200 numbered on Arches wove paper. The image is also engraved in the plate “d’Apres Marc Chagall – Ch. Sorlier Grav.” Stunning in its poetic display of color, this work mimics the melodic symphony of The Magic Flute.
