In most of Chagall’s large lithographs the color is supported by black drawing.  In this work, the artist wanted to rediscover “the chemistry” of his palette.  Using everything he had ever learned as an artist and printmaker, simultaneously making use of all the lithographer’s tools, he astonishes us with this bouquet more brilliant than the original flowers that he had arranged beside a basket of strawberries in his studio on the quai d’Anjou.
