Lot Essay

‘I am often asked: what do you call colour and its chemistry? The same can be said about colour as is said about music: The depth of colour goes through the eyes and remains within the soul, in the same way that music enters the ear and stays in the soul.’

- Marc Chagall (quoted in J. Baal-Teshuva (ed.), Chagall: A Retrospective, Westport, 1995, p. 181.)
