“Paris, my heart’s reflection, I would like to blend with it, not to be alone with myself.”This was part of a portfolio entitled “Regards sur Paris” (Gerard Bauer and various authors). Ten writers – all members of the Academie Goncourt – contributed essays to this book which presents the different sights and scenes of Paris. Each text is illustrated by a different artist with 2 full page and 1 double page Lithograph. Chagall’s contributions were
La Place de la Concorde, Le Bateau Mouche au bouquet (This present example) and Quai de la Tourelle
For more then 60 years the Compagnie des Bateau-Mouches has told a love story to generations of passengers, those who are curious, poets, those who are romantic or in love … Today the company has 6 boats which travel up and down the river Seinne and serve a delicious lunch or dinner.
