Notes

Abstract:
Detail of the night backdrop sketch for the wedding scene is a majestical fantasy. The drop has a moon that you can see through, painted in an abstract manner to give it a sketched look. You can see the depiction of Chagall's whirling sky that evolved from Aronson's use of a fushion of paint media. His favorite at the time was encaustics, which are heated, wax based paints. "Chagall will ever paint Fiddler on the Roof." Aronson said "He takes Anatevka with him wherever he goes. I only got to do it once."
