Marc Zakharovich Chagall ( born Moishe Zakharovich Shagalov 1887 - 1985) was a Russian-French artist of Belarusian Jewish origin. An early modernist, he was associated with several major artistic styles and created works in virtually every artistic format, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints.

For more biographical information see part 1, and for earlier works see parts 1 and 2 also.

  1. After Chagall left Russia for the last time, his paintings hardly referred back to his earlier life in the motherland again. Thus for me, paintings like Over Vitebsk, the Newsagent and Smolensk Newspaper remained his most important works - even if they were not his most beautiful.
