Artwork: The Rabbi of Vitebsk, Ca' Pesaro, Venice Artist: Chagall · · · The Rabbi of Vitebsk (also known as 'The Praying Jew') is a work belonging to Chagall's early production and was made in a peculiar period of the artist’s career. In fact Chagall, between 1914 and 1916, dedicated a series of portraits to the inhabitants of his hometown of Vitebsk (which is in Belarus now). Chagall had a deep fondness both for his homeland and for his Jewish faith. The rabbi pictured in the painting at Ca' Pesaro is praying and he is wearing his tallit (the traditional fringed white prayer shawl of the Jewish faith). The image’s geometrical simplification is influenced by the Russian avant-gardes: by Constructivism and by the Suprematism of Kasimir Malevich in particular #chagall #venice #venezia #ig_venice #lovevenice #venise #venetian #volgoarte #insideart #beniculturali #heritage #artblogger #traveling_arte #museitaliani #italianpainter #italianartist #arthistory #bellasartes #artislove #artistsoninstagram #awesomeitaly #italy_vacations #charmingitaly #ig_italia #ig_italy #loveitaly #volgoitalia  #igersitalia  #mylove_italy  #italia_dev

ক্ষতবিক্ষত আমার পেন্সিলে, তোমাকে খুঁজে পেতে, প্রকৃতিরও সুন্দর্য কম পরে যায়, তোমার ওই আঁখিরও মায়াতে। #artistsoninstagram #artislove #drawing #lovers #colorado #paintmixing
