That photographer would be Charles Leirens.

And indeed, he was a primary photographer of the Chagalls in that time frame.

one of my very prized possessions is a chagall lithograph. it's a simple thing, 3 colors, and depicts two carousel horses. with limited line, with limited color he managed to show a sense of motion, celebration, and whimsey. it is signed, and numbered (mine is 43 of 500).

when i look at it i see real genius. add a brush stroke, take a brush stroke away, add a color or take a color away, add a figure take a figure away, the piece would be diminished.

Rather eerie. I smell a potential Immortal Beloved-style biopic in the works, starring Adrian Brody and Rachel Weisz.

Did you see my recent glimpse of Edward Hopper's studio?


Fascinating story Lance, I didn't know much about Chagall's time in NY, in High Falls. The genius next door. And it's always intriguing when people (Virginia) are "disappeared" from history. In this case perhaps..a bit Soviet, no?
Great read, thanks.
