Historical Context:
When Marc Chagall created “Nature Morte Brune,” he had already achieved international fame and returned from exile to his home country of France. Settling into his a new found comfort after experiences many challenges and losses in the decades previously, he was becoming increasingly interested in lithography as that printing process allowed him to create images with a much wider range of colors. Images and mediums could be layered as he often created uncolored lithographs of and then painted or drew the color directly on the image with watercolors and pastels. Through this process he could better achieve the color study he was looking for before printing multiple plates of an image.
