    Marc Chagall Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 8.25" x 10.5", 1959, Vence, on "Les Collines" stationary, in Yiddish. Chagall writes to "Dear Aronson". Perhaps the recipient was Boris Aronson, a very influential Russian-born scenic designer for Broadway and Yiddish theatre who, in 1924, wrote a short monograph on Chagall and his art. The two men, sharing a common heritage and view of art, remained friends. In 1964, Aronson collaborated with Harold Prince designing the sets for Fiddler on the Roof, which took its title from Chagall's 1911 painting, The Fiddler. In this letter, Chagall discusses various art exhibitions. He also tells Aronson, "I hope that David at the Hotel des Ventes does not offer the historical paintings for sale . . . I love them." In closing, Chagall urges Aronson to "remain a true Jew among the torn [or divided] Jews." Folds and light soiling, else fine.
