Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario is hosting the exhibit, Chagall and the Russian Avant-Garde (to January 15, 2012). Chagall was born in Russia in 1887. He spent much of his life in exile but his work was influenced by his Russian and Jewish background. His work was also influenced by the French post impressionists. His use of color complements are seen in his above painting, Double Portrait with Wine Glass (1917-1918). Chagall uses the color green and red to enhance his painting. He used a green outline around the red jacket of the male figure to create vibrancy. Compare this painting with the color Chagall used in his painting, Cemetery Gates (1917).
