The Couple of the Eiffel Tower

R350.00
Quick Overview

Marc Chagall painted the painting they talk about in Notting Hill, 'Happiness isn't happiness without a violin playing goat'.  It seems like he liked s pot of violin playing goat, as this image also has the famous goat playing for the couple in love.

Chagall is a Russian born French painter and developed a poetic, amorphous, and deeply personal visual language throughout his career, visible in this painting.  He was seen as an early modernist, and associated with quite a few major artistic styles.  This happy couple at the Eiffel was painted in 1938 / 1939, when he lived in Paris and actively engaged with the artistic community there.  His images and work is truly unique and very personal.  He famously said: "If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing."  

This well-known painting has a very joyful, optimistic and happy mood associated with it and there are also a few of Chagall's favourite things depicted here: violin playing goat, a rooster, a happy couple floating through the air, angels, Paris and Vitebsk (depicted by the houses in the bottom right corner).  He had a deep love for both cities and often painted images of both.

Chagall truly lived for painting.  You can try your hand at a version of one of his lovely quirky paintings right here!

This 40 x 50cm version of his masterpiece is not too challenging, with larger areas than some other canvases.  It has 27 colours.  Each box contains a stretched, printed and numbered canvas, paint, brushes and a page detailing the numbers for an extra reference.
