Marc Chagall, born today in 1887, painted this work upon moving to Paris from rural Russia. The geometries of "I and the Village" are inspired by the broken planes of Cubism, but where Cubism was mainly an art of urban avant-garde society, "I and the Village" is nostalgic and magical, a rural fairy tale: objects jumble together, scale shifts abruptly, and a woman and two houses, at the painting's top, stand upside-down.http://bit.ly/1LRnrnC
