Thursday comes with Trivia...
Thinking caps on, everybody and let´s go:
"Born in Vitebsk, Russian Empire (now in Belarus), on the 7th of July in 1887, he was the oldest of nine children in the close-knit Jewish family led by his father, a herring merchant. This period of his life, described as happy though impoverished, appears in references throughout his work. From 1907-1910 he studied in Saint Petersburg, at the Imperial Society for the Protection of the Arts. In 1910, he moved to Paris, where he associated with Guillaume Apollinaire and Robert Delaunay and encountered Fauvism and Cubism. His first solo show was held in 1914 at Der Sturm gallery in Berlin. During World War II, he fled to the United States, but settled permanently in France in 1948 and exhibited in Paris, Amsterdam, and London. His talent did not only extend to canvases, he was a master sculpturer and many an amzing church window carries the stroke of his hand."
Got it? Off to the comment section with you and HINT!!! away :)
little hint: Minka named her dog after his beloved wife, which incidentally goes with the German word for "to bark". It seemed a good idea at the time!
