Song of songs IV - Marc Chagall Pouch

This stole features a detail from Marc Chagall's work, Song of songs IV - Oil on paper mounted on canvas - 144,5 x 210,5 cm - Nice - Musée national Marc Chagall

Based on one of the sets for the Aleko ballet, the composition features David and Bathsheba embraced on the back of a winged horse flying over the city of Jerusalem. The colour of David's face could illustrate the Yiddish saying "being green with emotion".
The horse holds a central place in the composition and can have several meanings: it embodies the power of human love, capable of rising to the divine, but also the power of desire and carnal love. He is finally Pegasus, the winged horse of Greek mythology, symbol of poetry.
The comet effect produced by the treatment of the train of the wedding dress contributes to the dynamism of the composition.
