DALLAS — On June 3, Heritage conducted its Fine European Art Signature® sale, offering 74 lots that accumulated just over $2,061,500 in total sales. Much of this is credited to Marc Chagall’s (1887-1985) “Rencontre dans le ciel,” circa 1980, that sold for $855,000. Created late in the artist’s life, the painting was bought directly from Chagall’s studio and had only passed through two owners before coming to auction for the first time at Heritage. The couple pictured is the artist and his first wife, Bella Rosenfeld; both described experiencing love at first sight, and were married from 1915 until her untimely death in 1944. As demonstrated by this work, Bella remained Chagall’s muse until his own passing. Prices quoted include the buyer’s premium as reported by the auction house.
