'Bro-Dal Showers' Are Like Bridal Showers For Dudes, Apparently
The wedding and all the other events leading up to it are generally bride-centric affairs. But why should being a guy preclude you from all the fun stuff (assuming you want to be part of it, that is)? And thus the concept of the "bro-dal" shower was ...

Chagall in a new light

We’ve all been there: You’ve run out of vacation days, you’ve got too much work to get done or, perhaps, that kitty of dough has dried up. Regardless, the only thing on your mind is how you’ve never spent a star-ridden night eating dessert under... Or how you’ve never once taken a train ride to Vienna just because you felt like it. So you sit and daydream, counting down the days until you are free of responsibility (all right, we know that never happens, but bear with us, please) and you... Er, we’ve got your walls covered.
When I began researching Chagall’s biography 15 years ago, I found, like scholars before me, that all paths led to the same Sleeping Beauty castle: a proud town house on the Île de la Cité in Paris, fiercely guarded by the artist’s heirs. It held the promise of treasures unseen, in some cases for nearly a century: an archive of letters from the 1910s, folded in tiny envelopes postmarked Moscow, Vitebsk and Berlin. But now the castle gates have been thrown open. The artist’s granddaughter, Meret Meyer, co-curates Marc Chagall, A Retrospective (1908-1985 ), a beautifully calibrated exhibition at Brussels’ Musée des Beaux Arts. Packed with unseen or scarcely known paintings from the family collection, it is accompanied by a catalogue that includes first publication of excerpts from the memoir. The fresh, informal works add an intimate layer to Chagall’s richly autobiographical oeuvre. They begin with poignant depictions evoking pre-1914 Russian shtetl life: Chagall’s tubercular brother David, body convulsed with coughing, tenaciously playing the mandolin. After Chagall’s exile to France in 1922, they open out to airy landscapes featuring his wife and daughter, such as “Bella and Ida in Peïra-Cava” (1931), set against the softly modelled valleys and peaks of the Maritime Alps, suffused with what...
