The artist was once now not packed with contradictions, nor was once he a cut up character, yet he continually remained diversified; he regarded round and inside of himself and on the surrounding global, and he used his current concepts and reminiscences. He had an completely poetical mode of suggestion that enabled him to pursue one of these advanced path. Chagall was once endowed with a kind of stylistic immunity: he enriched himself with no destroying whatever of his personal internal constitution. Admiring the works of others he studied them ingenuously, ridding himself of his younger awkwardness, but by no means wasting his authenticity for a second.
from time to time Chagall looked as if it would examine the area via magic crystal – overloaded with creative experimentation – of the Ecole de Paris. In such circumstances he may embark on a sophisticated and severe play with a number of the discoveries of the flip of the century and became his prophetic gaze like that of a biblical early life, to examine himself sarcastically and thoughtfully within the replicate. evidently, it completely and uneclectically mirrored the painterly discoveries of Cézanne, the fragile idea of Modigliani, and the advanced floor rhythms recalling the experiments of the early Cubists (See-Portrait on the Easel, 1914). regardless of the analyses which these days light up the painter’s Judaeo-Russian resources, inherited or borrowed yet constantly elegant, and his formal relationships, there's consistently a few percentage of puzzle in Chagall’s artwork.

Cette période, pour exaltante qu’elle soit, sera marquée par le conflit avec Malévitch. Peu de témoignages rendent compte de cet affrontement. Chagall l’évoque, d’une façon elliptique, dans Ma Vie. Mais à l’examen du parcours esthétique de chacun des deux peintres, l’antagonisme était inévitable. Quand Malévitch est invité par les élèves de l’école d’Art de Vitebsk – Chagall précise d’ailleurs que ce fut une de ses projects -, Malévitch est un artiste connu qui a formulé l’essentiel de sa doctrine suprématiste. Le début de l’année voit l’organisation de los angeles Xe Exposition d’Etat « Création non aim et suprématisme » où Malévitch disclose Carré blanc. Malévitch attaque violemment Chagall dans ses principes d’enseignement et l. a. nature de son artwork qu’il taxe avec mépris de naturalisme.
