Marc Chagall (1887-1985)
Marc Chagall was a Russian-born French painter and designer, distinguished for his
surrealistic inventiveness. He is recognized as one of the most significant painters and
graphic artists of the 20th century. His work treats subjects in a vein of humor and
fantasy that draws deeply on the resources of the unconscious. Chagall's personal and
unique imagery is often suffused with exquisite poetic inspiration.
Chagall was born July 7, 1887, in Vitsyebsk, Russia (now in Belarus), and was educated
in art in Saint Petersburg and, from 1910, in Paris, where he remained until 1914.
Between 1915 and 1917 he lived in Saint Petersburg; after the Russian Revolution he
was director of the Art Academy in Vitsyebsk from 1918 to 1919 and was art director of
the Moscow Jewish State Theater from 1919 to 1922. Chagall painted several murals in
the theater lobby and executed the settings for numerous productions. In 1923, he
moved to France, where he spent the rest of his life, except for a period of residence in
the United States from 1941 to 1948. He died in St. Paul de Vence, France, on March
Chagall's distinctive use of color and form is derived partly from Russian expressionism
and was influenced decisively by French cubism. Crystallizing his style early, as in
Candles in the Dark (1908, artist's collection), he later developed subtle variations. His
numerous works represent characteristically vivid recollections of Russian-Jewish village
scenes, as in I and the Village (1911, Museum of Modern Art, New York City), and
incidents in his private life, as in the print series Mein Leben (German for My Life,
1922), in addition to treatments of Jewish subjects, of which The Praying Jew (1914,
Art Institute of Chicago) is one. His works combine recollection with folklore and
fantasy. Biblical themes characterize a series of etchings executed between 1925 and
1939, illustrating the Old Testament, and the 12 stained-glass windows in the
Hadassah Hospital of the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center in Jerusalem
(1962). In 1973 Mus?e National Message Biblique Marc Chagall (National Museum of
the Marc Chagall Biblical Message) was opened in Nice, France, to house hundreds of his
biblical works. Chagall executed many prints illustrating literary classics. A canvas
completed in 1964 covers the ceiling of the Op?ra in Paris, and two large murals (1966)
hang in the lobby of the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City.
