L'inspire Inspiration Self Portrait Chagall Lithographe no398 22" 55.5cm high
L'INSPIRÉ, SELF PORTRAIT, MARC CHAGALL & HIS WIFE VALENTINA VAVA, LITHOGRAPH MOURLOT 398, 1963 A self-portrait of the great artist, depicting him lost in thought before one of his paintings, which is apparently related to his home country Russia, as suggested by the small figure in the lower right of the work. Chagall's wife Valentina ("Vava"), who was also from Russia, is looking over his shoulder, full of longing. The small surreal elements that are characteristic of Chagall's paintings are also present here: the silhouettes of the houses that seems to stick out of the painting and a figure with a flute or trombone standing on its head.
