Marc Chagall

Marc Chagall was a Russian artist, he was born July 7, 1887 and died March 28, 1985 of natural causes.

Chagall developed an early interest in art. After studying painting, in 1907 he left Russia for Paris, where he lived in an artist colony on the city's outskirts. After returning to Vitebsk for a visit in 1914, the outbreak of WWI trapped Chagall in Russia.

His name was added by the director of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City to a list of artists and intellectuals deemed most at risk from the Nazis which is the anti-Jewish campaign. Chagall and his family would be among the more than 2,000 who received visas and escaped this way.

Also during his time period brought him new success as an artist and enabled him to travel throughout Europe in the 1930s.

All his artworks are so unique and creative because he involves God in each of his artworks and some way they all connect with eachother. My four favorite artworks of his are “American Windows”, “Green Violinist”, "I and the Village", and "The Fiddler" because it tells a story and a dream of his life time in the artworks. He expresses his own style to each artwork to make it his own and both are beautiful pieces of artworks. These artworks capture religious forms of symbols of God, Judaism, and Christianity. Chagall creates his own personal style and in a way, he puts his own personal touch on his artworks.
