Marc Chagall (1887-1985) is among the most beloved, respected, and cherished visual artists in Jewish, Russian, and French history - and claimed by all three cultures as their own. At the forefront of numerous major artistic movements, his joyful use of color and frequent Jewish themes, as well as his surreal perspectives, give an instantly recognizable look to his work.
