The Poet-Painter

There are many reasons why I am continuously inspired by the painter Marc Chagall (1887-1985).  Here is just one: his overcoming faith in Love. When we consider what he lived through (the Russian Revolution, two world wars, the Holocaust), the following quote becomes even more extraordinary:

“Despite all the troubles of our world, in my heart I have never given up on the love in which I was brought up or on man’s hope in love.  In life, just as on the artist’s palette, there is but one colour that gives meaning to life and art — the colour of love.”
