Marc Chagall's ‘Violoniste Au Village Enneige’, gouache, pastel, coloured crayons and China ink on paper 1977. The violinist has been a recurring motif in the artist's work. The note by the auction house states: Often depicted as larger than life, dancing on small house roofs, they were inspired by the people the artist came upon during his early years in Vitebsk.
