Valentina "Vava" Brodsky Chagall
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1905, Russian Federation
Death: Dec., 1993
Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France

Valentina Brodsky was introduced to Marc Chagall by his daughter Ida in Apr 1952 as a housekeeper, just after the end of Marc's relationship with Virginia Haggard. Marc and Valentina married on 12 Jul 1952. They remained in Provence, France. The couple settled in the town of Saint-Paul-de-Vence. "Vava" was the driving force behind the artist's prolific work in his later years. She particularly encouraged his design of stained glass windows for many churches and cathedrals during the period between their marriage in 1952 and his death 33 years later. Valentina was widowed in 1985, and buried her Jewish husband in the local Catholic cemetery. She also died in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, and was survived by her brother Michel Brodsky. Valentina Brodsky Chagall is interred with her husband in the cemetery at Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Her brother Michel is buried there as well. For additional photographs of Valentina's headstone, please see the memorial for Marc Chagall
