Information about the artwork
Particularity of Chagall's art lies in the fact that instead of a serial narrative he shows to us individual episodes and characters - inhabitants of heaven and spiritual leaders of the people.
They are all shown in close up, generally, as a rule, without certain place and time. The artist's works are easy to naive in execution, as if they were drawn by a child, but with what primordial power these lines and spots are organized. The biblical theme was the leitmotif of the entire work of Marc Chagall. The Bible came alive, touched by his brush, the ancient texts blazed with new fire of rosen sacrament.
This work is one of the rarest and most expensive from Chagall's biblical series - this subject was especially close to the artist: these were names of his grandfather and grandmother, who lived all their lives together. King David and his love Bathsheba - are Old Testament characters, parents of King Solomon.
