Remember the giant pink plastic sculpture of a "Young Hare"
sitting on top of the canopy over the entrance of the Albertina museum?
For a moment I thought I had spotted a smaller version of it,
there on the stairs, hopping away.
No hare, but Marc Chagall's wife, Bella,
was taking flight up there, at the top of the stairway.

Link -> CHAGALL TO MALEVICH - THE RUSSIAN AVANT GARDES:
"130 masterpieces by Mikhail Larionov, Natalia Goncharova, Kazimir Malevich, Wassily Kandinsky, and Marc Chagall illustrate fundamentally different styles and their dynamic development from primitivism to cubo-futurism and on to suprematism, as well the chronological parallels between figurative expressionism and pure abstraction."
