by Marc Chagall (1887 – 1985)
He is one the big names, one of the big myths of art history, with numerous exhibitions all around the world. His stroke has immediately recognizable strength and poetry. “In our life, like on an artist’s palette, only one colour gives meaning to art and life: the colour of love” he wrote. One could not explain better the story of this flower that he drew with a cheerful hand, to hold out like a gift.
