I and the Village
Taiwan Fest 2019
I AND THE VILLAGE - Marc Chagall
Created during the best phase of his career, this is the most famous painting by Marc Chagall. It is dominated by the image of a green-faced man and a goat staring at each other; and a glowing tree held in a hand. This is complemented by several scenes like that of a goat being milked and a collection of houses, some upside down. The painting consists of dreamlike images of Russian landscape and symbols from folk stories. As its title suggests, I and the Village is influenced by Chagall’s memories of his homeland and his relationship to it. The use of clearly defined elements with specific meaning like the Tree of Life, and the daringly whimsical style of the painting were considered ground breaking at the time.

While having a cool drink in a sidewalk cafe on Granville Street, a couple of people stopped to talk about my hat.
