"I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude,
two for friendship, three for society."
Henry David Thoreau, 1817-1862
American author and naturalist
It's true, I posted this quotation only a couple of months ago, but while reviewing all my favorite Chagalls, in preparation for today's new Fortnightly, I spent some time looking closely at the chairs in Chagall's "Small Drawing Room" and just had to pair it with Thoreau's observation on seating arrangements.
