This work is accompanied by a confirmation from Anne-Laure Lassaigne, Comité Marc Chagall, Paris, from 25 September 2009.

A charming sketch in color pen, which has the full appeal of Chagall's drawings. It unites everything that made Chagall's later works so popular, that is the flying angel and the painter himself in front of his easel. This work also excels in terms of its briskness and the comedic expression. [KD].
