Marc Chagall, La Femme du Peintre, 1971

La Femme du Peintre, or “The Artist’s Wife,” by Marc Chagall is an expression of the master artist’s dedication to family. The piece, created in 1971, depicts Chagall and his second wife, Valentina “Vava” Brodsky. As with his first wife and muse, Bella Rosenfeld who died of a virus during World War II, the artist consistently immortalizes his loves in his work.
