Love defies Death in Art: the paradigm of Marc Chagall

"The Firebird" Marc Chagall 1949

Chagall's pure and unconditional love for his first wife, Bella Rosenfeld (who died suddenly in 1944) haunts his earlier and part of his later art. I love his extraordinary use of colour and the loss of gravity that prevails in his work. It is this dream-like quality of art that compensates for frustration in everyday life.
