London
Marc Chagall, Colour of Life: Works Formerly from the Artist's Estate

Sale Overview

Launching our 20/21 London to Paris Marquee Week, Marc Chagall, Colour of Life: Works Formerly from the Artist’s Estate is a celebration of the enchanting world of Marc Chagall.

Featuring 20 works, it marks the inaugural sale in a series of auctions to be held at Christie’s dedicated to the work of the acclaimed artist. Throughout his long and storied career, Chagall forged a bold path within modern art in pursuit of his own singular vision. Conjuring fantastical, dream-like scenes, rooted in his own personal life and rich memories filtered through a highly idiosyncratic painterly vocabulary, Chagall developed an iconic style that earned him a place as one of the most instantly recognisable painters of the Twentieth Century.

Marc Chagall, Colour of Life: Works Formerly from the Artist’s Estate offers a rare insight into the artist’s unique creative spirit featuring a selection of works that reflects the full range of Chagall’s multifaceted oeuvre.
