Description — Click to read

his early, now extremely rare and powerful lithograph was executed when Chagall was 35 years old. It was published by Bruno and Paul Cassirer in Berlin around 1922 or 1923, thus just before Chagall left for Paris. The word “Samovar” is Russian for a tea urn. In My Life by Marc Chagall, (first printed in Great Britain in 1965), p. 28; Chagall writes: “Day after day, winter and summer, my father arose at six o’clock in the morning and went off to the synogauge. Then he said his usual prayer for one dead soul or another. On his return, he prepared the samovar, had a drink of tea, and left for work.”
