This fantastical image represents Marc Chagall’s exploration of the relationship between man and animal, a theme rst touched upon in his art of the 1920s. The present composition blends these elements in a whimsical manner representative of a dream.
The juxtaposition of disparate gures and incongruous colors are crucial elements in all of Chagall’s works, which are believed to portray everything from the artist’s dreams to his beliefs and visions of the ideal world.
