Marc Chagall (1887-1985, Russian/French) - "Romeo and Juliet" from The Paris Opera Ceiling, 1963. This is a Limited Edition color lithograph numbered (66/500) and plate-signed. It measures 23" x 32" unframed and ships free in the USA. This is one of the many images of scenes Chagall created for his masterwork created as an homage to several operas and composers for the ceiling of the Palais Garnier in Paris. He divided the space into several color zones and wove together scenes and characters from the most beloved operas and ballets. Chagall’s ceiling (or, in French, le plafond de Chagall) was unveiled on September 23, 1964. This masterpiece was a gift from Chagall to Paris for the Opera House, and he took no compensation for the task. This image of "Romeo and Juliet" is Chagall's interpretation of the classic opera in five acts composed by Charles Gounod to a French libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carre, based on "The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespeare.
