“In our life there is a single color, as on an artist’s palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love.”
Marc Chagall, who died in 1985 at the age of 97, is without doubt one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. In his paintings he created a unique world full of pathos, poetry, humor and enchantment, drawing on vivid memories of his childhood in what is today Belorus. Clearly influenced by Byzantine and Russian icon painting and folk art, he wished his own mythological floating figures and symbolism to be interpreted freely, if at all. Chagall loved life. He loved the circus an he loved the Bible, and found the same human paradox in both: joy mixed with tragedy, beauty with sadness. The poetic and biblical inspirations of Chagall’s art have always appealed to a broad public, and his works are collected, exhibited and admired all over the world.
