Historical Context:
Marc Chagall was a Russian-Jewish artist born in Belarus (former Russian Empire). He was associated with several key art movements and recognized as one of the most successful artists of the twentieth century. He forged a unique career in virtually every artistic medium including paintings, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramics, tapestries and fine art prints. Chagall's haunting, exuberant, and poetic images have enjoyed universal appeal, and art critic Robert Hughes called him "the quintessential Jewish artist of the twentieth century."
