Many of Chagall’s finest paintings feature Bella, his wife and muse. The couple first met by coincidence in Vitebsk, Belarus, their hometown, in the summer of 1909, when he was twenty-two and she was fourteen. The shock of a love at first sight, which grew to inspire such great works, is famously recorded in Marc’s memoir My Life and in Bella’s published notebooks First Encounter.
