Marc Chagall’s “Le Violoniste Vert” or “Green Violinist” Print.

Lot 727. Marc Chagall’s “Le Violoniste Vert” or “Green Violinist” Print. It’s not surprising that this artwork causes many viewers to think of the play “Fiddler on the Roof.” Chagall, the early modernist artist, who was born in Lithuania, lived in Russia and moved to France, is often credited with inspiring the play’s title. That link is disputed, but it does seem that either this Chagall painting or an earlier creation influenced the appearance of the play’s Tevye. In his notes, Jerry Robbins, who directed the play, wrote that after reading the script in 1963, “In searching for a comparative vision, the paintings of Chagall came the closest.” Over his career, Chagall produced a number of renderings of violinists, including the painting for this performer in 1923-24. The original is in the Guggenheim in New York. This 15.25” x 28” print, professionally matted and framed to 26.25” x 39.25”, is mint. Chagall’s life spanned 1887-1985. Winning Bid $25.
