In 1914 he returned to Vitebsk to marry his fiancee, Bella Rosenfeld, whom he had met in 1909. At the beginning of the First World War, Chagall remained in his hometown. In 1915 he married Bella and the following year they had a daughter whom they named Ida.

 

Chagall's works in Spain [edit]
Traditionally little known to Spanish collecting, Chagall now has a significant presence in Spain, mainly due to the opening of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid (four oil paintings, dated between 1913 and the 1930s). In addition to the aforementioned painting in Tosa de Mar, there are two others (both still lifes of flowers) in Madrid (Palacio de Liria, Collection of the House of Alba) and Galicia (collection of Novacaixagalicia).
