[Perspectives] The burning light

“In our life there is a single colour, as on an artist’s palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the colour of love”, artist Marc Chagall wrote. While these words encapsulate the strong emotional undercurrent that characterises the work of the Belorussian artist, they also perfectly describe the profound love between Chagall and his first wife Bella, whom he portrayed in many of his canvasses, often flying with him above the roofs of their hometown.
