For Love — of Chagall

“In our life there is a single color, as on an artist palette which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love.”

(Marc Chagall)

 

Perhaps it’s the hot, sultry July nights, or maybe the all-too-lengthy drought…

Whatever the cause, my mind gravitates to the luscious artworks of Chagall. Specifically, his highly charged images of lovers. Often incorporating depictions of his beloved wife Bella and village life, he remains unrivaled in his masterful exploitation of emotive colors, fantastic imagery, unbridled joy — happy and uninhibited expressions of spiritual and sensual passions. With a deft hand, with a loving hand, he created a pageantry of life’s exuberance and exultation that lives and breathes today… that satisfies on a hot July night, that eases the drought…

What’s not to love?

Had the joy of going to the Chagall museum in Nice! WHAT an experience! Just being in the presence of his huge paintings was a spiritual experience.
