Marc Chagall (1887-1985) was a Belorussian-born French artist known for his poetic, dreamlike imagery filled with rich colors. He was the first of nine children born into a modest Jewish family in Vitebsk, Belarus. Chagall was associated with several major artistic styles and created works in a wide range of formats.
Chagall travelled extensively between Saint Petersburg, Paris, and Berlin before World War I. His early images were based on emotional and poetic associations rather than realistic depictions of the world around him. Many of his works depict scenes from Jewish life or incorporate religious symbolism.
Chagall is considered to be one of the most influential modernist artists of the 20th Century. His figurative oeuvre has inspired countless artists in various mediums over many decades. Despite facing significant challenges throughout his life, Chagall’s contributions left an indelible mark on art history that continues to be celebrated today.
