In the Walk (oil on canvas, 1918) scene fantastic flight Bella, ascended into wide, as if disclosed to fly the sky, but land-related hand and the figure of the artist, an amazing "Tile" on the surface of a large, almost square canvas. The main line of the composite picture and its color patches included in line with each other and the resulting balance of diagonal movements.
In the painting "The Walk" flight lyrical - is rejoicing accomplishment when Chagall picture of the world in the years of the revolution is drawn up, separating earth and sky lowest horizontal line. Before that there was room in Vitebsk, ritual life, strangely passionate people, almost feral in cramped four walls and unfulfilled aspirations. But here they are dreaming,, staring up at the sky, climbed through the window onto the roof and ... detailed and desert world swung open, and above them lies a vast sky.

But even though he is on the ground, but somehow fragile, as if he was going to fly in the air, because they have both now winged spirits and they are ready to administer miracles.)
