Chagall’s use of color in his lithographs is stunning. In heavily worked images such as his 1975 print L’Oranger (“The Orange Tree”), scumbled black lines are layered with swathes of pale green, turquoise, yellow, orange, and rosy pinks and reds. He depicts a young couple and their dog, standing in the sun by an orange tree bearing fruit, which may be suggestive of their romantic and sexual fruitfulness. Gardens were a recurring theme for the artist, as can be seen in Le Jardin de Pomone (“The Garden of Pomona”) (1968). He portrays the mythical garden cultivated by the Roman deity of fruitful abundance; the Edenic scene, in its draughtsman-like line drawing, is composed around a bird at the center, soaring through the air. Around the garden, people cavort and gather food or flowers; a man rides a horse, a woman tends to her child. The beauty of the space is complemented by the rich embroidery of rapid gestural marks that Chagall used to build the image.
