Chagall Work Sells For $1.1 Million

December 05, 1985| From Associated Press

LONDON — An oil painting by Marc Chagall called "La Chambre Jaune" or "The Yellow Room" sold for almost $1.1 million, an auction record for a Chagall work, Christie's said.

The painting was purchased by the United States-based Citibank.

The Russian-born Chagall, who died earlier this year, painted the picture in 1911 when he was living in Paris. It depicts a woman with an upside-down face, a man, a cow and a lopsided table with a samovar on it in a yellow room with the moon shining through an open doorway.
