Marc Chagall -

Did you know Marc Chagall was actually born  Moishe Shagal, and when the namae was rendered in Russian, it became Mark Zakharovich Shaglalov.   Today, I was feeling a little whimsical, and because his works often have whimsy and fantasy in them, I decided to do a little research on him.

One of my favorite art quotes is attributed to him:   "Great art picks up where nature ends".
also  "If I create art from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing".

Look him up on wikipedia - the link is  http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marc_chagall

Who is your favorite painter?
