The painting was acquired by Chagall's family from Galeria Maeght in Paris decades ago, and is located at Christie's, London. With emotion and delicacy, the lovers who are portrayed in the painting are Chagall and his second wife, Valentina 'Vava' Brodsky. On the upper left side of the painting, his first wife Bella, who is the first love of his life, wears a bridal white dress and floats as a ghostly spectre. On the front is St. Paul de Vence, a place where Chagall spent almost forty years of his life. It is signed "Marc Chagall" on the lower right of the portrait.
The painting is engulfed in radiant blue colour, which portrays the incandescent Mediterranean light of the south. As a result, the painting is filled with opalescence and vibrancy. The blue overlay on the entire composition generates a beautiful morning atmosphere. The blue colour is also used by the painter to create a fantasy theme. The flowers in Marc Chagall's works are omnipresent in Chagall's works as motivation and figurative elements. This beautiful composition gives the impression of wild, fiery and emotional motifs. Its background too involves a blissful dreamy lover who is lifted into deep human sensations.
The painting portrays themes that dominated most of Chagall's work: memory, nostalgia and romance. Flowers are used as a symbol of love to celebrate Marc Chagall's second and last great love. They also create a romantic mood. In his works, lovers give out cut flowers, and ladies, mostly wearing bridal dresses, receive them just as Bella did. Marc Chagall first introduced symbolism using flowers in 1920, having returned to France from his native Russia. Bouquet près de la fenêtre is arranged like a dream, and the motifs appear as Chagall's imagination, memories from the past and images from the present, which then creates a fantastical new reality. The open window shown on the painting is associated with French modernism that vividly revealed a highly decorated interior. His first wife, Bella, who appears as a floating ghost watching them, portrays the theme of romance. This is because it shows that despite the fact that Chagall's wife is dead and he already remarried, he did not forget about his first love.
