A wondrous scene unfolds in Marc Chagall's La reve de l’ane (The Donkey’s Dream), 1968, Three figures, two men and a donkey are the main subjects of the work. The donkey is bathed in a yellow glow as it holds a candle in its right hand. It follows a figure which appears to have two faces. Above them sits a character on a swing, overlooking the scene unfolding below. The work is aptly titled as the figures appear floating above a town, each given its own role in a dreamlike scene. It is as if the donkey is in two places at once, sleeping below in the town, but also on an adventure in the skies above. Both sun and moon are present in the sky, signalling both the night during which the dream occurs, but also that it is the dream itself that is being depicted. The subtle colors of gold and yellow imbue the image with the tranquility of night time.

Created in 1968, this color etching and aquatint is hand-signed by Marc Chagall (Vitebsk, 1887- Saint-Paul, 1985) in pencil in the lower right margin. This piece is numbered form the edition of 50 in the lower left margin.
