Near Fine, single page from watermarked Hotel Belles-Rives paper, typed and boldly signed by Marc Chagall. Toning to bottom edge of paper, minimal wear, very well-preserved. One corrected typed character, covered with white-out. An unusual and emotive artist statement/poem, by Chagall, based on his work "The Apparition (1917-1918)," describing in beautiful imagery a "dream" "evoked" in Chagall. Chagall had reported that the painting was based his memory of a dream while a student; this statement either stands in captivating juxtaposition with that original dream, or is an allusion to, or perhaps description of, that dream. Lovely, rare, unique. Certificate of Authenticity included. [Image in listing of painting for illustrative purposes only; no prints, etc., included].
