Cemetery Gates (Les Portes Du Cimetière) - Marc Chagall - Posters
The way in which elements of the sky are fragmented into sharp angled shapes will remind some of the work of German painter Franz Marc, and the piece is entirely contemporary in appearance, which was very much the trademark of Chagall too. We find a overhanging tree that leans over the entrance, whilst the perspective of the surrounding fence plus other elements is deliberately skewed in a way that differs from reality.
This alteration of perspective fundamentals was also found commonly within the work of Cubists, such as Braque and Gris. Despite the content, the palette and style is fairly upbeat, but one is left wondering why the artist chose such a location for this painting, as Chagall frequently placed clear messages within his paintings.
