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 the conjoined portraits of Chagall and his wife.
