Original Pen and Ink Drawing Signed, 7 x 9 inches showing in 12 x 16 frame
by CHAGALL, MARC
Chagall has drawn a fanciful artist's palette with tops of brushes showing through the openings for fingers. On the palette he writes, "Vence 1951," inscribes above in French and signs in full to the left of the palette, "Marc Chagall." Presented in archival materials and framed in burled wood frame. Horace Richter (1918-2006) Art Gallery Owner in Tel Aviv and art collector. 1951, the date of Chagall's dedication to Richter suggests both attended the Venice Biennial because of past participation. Chagall was at the Venice Biennial of 1948. He exhibited there and won the graphics prize for his color lithographs. Chagall was in Israel in 1951, his second visit, a long time after his first visit in 1931. In the Spring of 1951 he visited, at the invitation of President Salman Shazar, and attended openings of his solo exhibitions in Jerusalem, Haifa and Tel Aviv. In June of 195,1 Chagall went to Tel Aviv to arrange an extensive exhibition of his work, the first undertaking of a new association of Israel Museums, showing 60 oils, over 100 gouaches and watercolors, sketches for the theater and opera and more. The exhibition included his latest painting "King David" which was exhibited for the first time in a Tel Aviv Museum. The Haifa Museum of Art was established in 1951 and inaugurated with an exhibition in homage to Marc Chagall. Additional information on Richter's gallery via its web site Richter Gallery.
