The lovers, the most favorite theme of Marc Chagall, are completely detached from the background of the Paris skyline bathed in an evening sun, with all their hovering other-worldliness. There is no room for the aggressions of a modern urbanity in Chagall‘s poetic view of the world. Paris seems to be an island for lovers, full of blossoms and poetry, which Chagall outlines with an easy stroke and a great feeling for colors in this work. [KD].
