The style of Marc Chagall is so unusual that it is difficult to classify it with some mainstream painting. According to the artist’s manner, the work breathes a fabulous atmosphere, the details of the environment of the characters are carefully drawn.
In the picture Wedding we can see a couple of lovers standing in front of their house. The girl is dressed in a white wedding dress, and her hair is covered with a veil. The black-haired bride's gaze is turned directly to the viewer, and her white-gloved hand gently hugs the groom's waist. On the woman’s right cheek you can see the silhouette of a baby, which indicates that the bride is either dreaming of a baby, or is already bearing it. The groom is depicted in a black suit and hat. The man’s left hand strokes the bride’s veil, and his face turned in profile expresses boundless love for his wife. His gaze is directed directly to his beloved.
Above a pair of lovers is a plump angel with bright red wings and a dress. Since the overall color palette of the work consists of dark blue, black, gray and white colors, this character stands out most strongly against the background of other characters. An angel holds the union of the newlyweds from heaven.
In the background you can see a wooden house, the window of which attracts more attention. Light comes from it, and various dishes and a festive atmosphere can be seen from afar: everything is ready for the meeting of a young bride and groom! On the tree near the house you can see the dark figure of a violinist, who plays a wedding motif. The abundance of white components underlines the fabulous atmosphere and purity of the holiday, which holds the love union of two people together.
