Part of the exhibition Chagall: Colour and Music (Exhibition, January 28 to June 11, 2017); from a private collection. Chagall took French citizenship in 1937, but, with his wife Bella, he was forced to seek asylum in the USA in 1941 after he had been briefly imprisoned under the Vichy government in Marseille. This sketch has many of his common motifs; the cock or rooster, goat and a floating woman with a bouquet of flowers. (Source: Grove Art Online; http://www.oxfordartonline.com/)
