Yizkor - La prier du souvenir, 1946
Original Drawing in brown ink on paper, signed by the artist and signed “Chagall, Paris” below right, dated below left
8 1/3 x 4 1/2 inches (21.4 x 13 cm.)
The drawing was made only one year after the end of the Second World War and doubtless reflects Chagall’s admiration and respect for a writer and scholar of Judaism. The Angel of the Lord can be seen above right. Perhaps the figures emerging from a door on the left are indeed those who should be remembered having perished in the Holocaust in the only too recent conflict. In 1946 all would have been aware of these tragic events.
