❀ MONDAY MUSE :: Only love interests me, and I am only in contact with things I love ~ Marc Chagall ❀


:: Beautiful truths of Master Chagall ::

▲ When first introduced to art as a child he only painted in purple

▲ He was happily married to Bella, his muse for 29 years before her passing, she is the one seen ‘floating’ in most of his art

▲ When Matisse dies,” Pablo Picasso remarked in the 1950s, “Chagall will be the only painter left who understands what color really is.”

▲ He + his family were forced to leave Europe for the US in 1941 as the Nazis were closing in + he was in danger not only because he was a Jew but because he was a well known known artist at that time + much of his art revolved around + depicted his heritage + religion

▲ Chagall is one of very few artists to exhibit work at the Louvre in their lifetime ❀
