Provenance: The Joseph Liverant Estate, Ottawa, Canada. Joseph Liverant fled from Germany to take up residence in Canada at the time of the Second World War. After the war he purchased a residence in Beaulieu-sur-Mer close to St Paul de Vence where Marc Chagall lived. He and the artist became good friends and their warm relationship is evident in the numerous extant dedications on Lithographs, posters and books. After Joseph’s death the estate finally passed to his stepson, Felix Quinet who donated many works to The National Gallery of Canada. Upon his passing there was an Estate sale from which this item comes.
