Born Moishe Shagal on 7 July 1887 in Liozna, Belarus, Marc Chagall was a French-Russian designer, etcher, lithographer, and painter. His fantasy compositions often depict aspects of his family and personal history, as well as those of the folklore of Eastern Europeans at large. The artist’s practice ran the entire art gamut, including glass staining, ceramics, books, printmaking and painting.
Chagall’s style and artworks played a crucial role in influencing the emergence of twentieth-century art. In fact, the emotional gestures and dreamlike subjects were influential in developing most avant-garde movements like Symbolism, Fauvism and Cubism.su_spacer size=”20″]
