The green lovers

One of the most famous 20th century painters that has not yet appeared in this blog: Belorussian-born French artist Marc Chagall (1887-1985). Most of his best-known works in a symbolist expressionist style simply do not appeal to me. However, when I stumbled upon this 1915 cubist portrait, I was sold at once. More about Chagall in the Wikipedia article linked to below.
