Romance and intrigue greet us in the captivating Chagall Les Amourex en gris (Lovers in Grey), 1957 as the black strokes of the night envelope two lovers who are illuminated in grey by the bath of light floating from the moon.

With beautiful spots of bright colors masterfully placed about, the composition is light and fluid with a sense of movement and peace. The lovers touch their foreheads tenderly, and gaze at one another. Though rendered with simple lines, the grace and movement that is present shines through as powerful emotion. A beautiful testament to the bond of love, this composition is worth a view in person.
