Rare Lithographs by Marc Chagall, Edgar Degas Come to Sale with Dane Fine ArtJan 26, 2023 00:01 EST
Louis Icart, a French painter, was a well-known graphic artist and illustrator who began drawing very early in his life. He was influenced by 18th-century French masters such as François Boucher and Jean-Honoré Fragonard. His portrayal of women was marked by a combination of sensuality and humor. An original oil painting by Louis Icart, titled Le Thé au Jardin, is a key highlight of the upcoming Dane Fine Art sale. The rare work is hand-signed in paint at the lower left corner. Another unusual artwork on offer, an offset lithograph of The Praying Jew (Rabbi of Vitebsk), is based on Marc Chagall’s original painting. The piece belongs to an edition of 100 published by the Art Institute of Chicago. The portrait is notable for its limited palette and simplicity. In his autobiography, Chagall described that he made a sitter pose wearing his father’s prayer clothes and then painted him to create the image.
A lithograph on chine applique on wove paper by Edgar Degas and George William Thornley also leads the catalog. Le Jockey, a rare artwork from an edition of 25, is hand-signed by Degas and Thornley.
