News and Notes
Recently, I saw a Chagall painting in person for the first time. It wasn't one of his more famous paintings, yet the moment I recognized the bold colors and distinctive figures, my heart started racing. Feelings echoed or perhaps at least hinted at by the following scene from the 1987 movie Moonstruck, starring Cher and Nicolas Cage:
Loretta: What's that?
Ronny: This was done by Marc Chagall, and as you can see, he was a very great artist.
Loretta: It's kind of gaudy.
Ronny: Well, he was having some fun.
