The Enchanted Night (La Nuit Enchantée) - Marc Chagall - Large Art Prints
La nuit enchantée is a 1964 painting by Marc Chagall that combines many of his favourite motifs in a nocturnal vision filled with magic and poetry. A violinist, animals, a nude and flowers are all shown against a backdrop which has elements that recall Vitebsk, the home of Chagall's youth. This is a dream-like image of the night, suffused with whimsy and romance. At the same time, La nuit enchantée displays Chagall's virtuosity in the realm of colour: while the canvas is dominated by the dark blues of the night scene, he has used this backdrop as a foil for bold flashes of colour, be it in the red cockerel seen tumbling upside down, the pink of the nude's flesh, the bloom of the flowers or the searing white of the crescent moon.
This understanding of colour was to gain Chagall a new generation of aficionados during the post-war period, when he turned his hand to monumental projects that included stained glass. His increased colourism is often credited to his work with luminous, translucent glass. In La nuit enchantée, this is reflected in the way that Chagall has used various colours to push other ones further into electric relief.
