Marc Chagall

The Chagall Museum in Nice, France, gave me inspiration to attempt to produce a painting in Chagall’s style. At the museum the paintings I found most interesting were interpretations of the Hebrew Bible, notably stories from the Books of Genesis and the Song of Songs (Song of Solomon).

In the painting I produced the idea was to capture Chagall’s idea of diagonal lines and brilliant color. Further, he placed figures of animals and people in the painting to carry out the inner meaning of the story. In his renditions of God he never showed a figure, only hands reaching out of a cloud. He also liked to place himself as a painter in the picture. I have done that also. The painter in the sun where the light shows the subject more clearly.

I painted this picture in Cannes, France, in 2010. It is a watercolor and ink, 12 x 16. The story is the Solomon’s love interest resting on a pomegranate. I call the painting “The Queen of Sheba apres Marc Chagall.”

The Queen of Sheba, apres Chagall

let us go out early to the vineyards, and see whether the vines have budded, whether the grape blossoms have opened and the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love. Song of Song 7:12
