Note:Those who say things without saying anything” . Chagall illustrates Aragon's poetry in twenty-five original full-page colour etchings with aquatint of which this an one example. While Aragon's verse is mainly a tribute to the painter, Chagall's original engravings focus on many of his favourite themes and exemplify his typically poetic and whimsical style. This example shows a man somersaulting over his cottage roof
