The Fiddler  1913

by Marc Chagall

Marc Chagall's The Fiddler, completed just after moving to Paris from St. Petersburg, is a good representation of the artist's work from this period. The fiddler as a subject is often found in Chagall's work. The huge figure of the musician in this painting stands with one foot on the roof of a building, the other on a small hilltop which flattens out the picture plane....
