“In our life there is a single color, as on an artist’s palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love.”
Marc Chagall, born in 1887, was a Russian painter, printmaker and designer. His art is in galleries and museums across the world, and we know him as one of the great artists of the 20th century. Chagall was born in Vitebsk, Russia (now Belarus) to a Jewish family. Immersed in Jewish culture and iconography at an early age, Judaic traditions and folklore show in his art. After studying in St. Petersburg, he moved to Paris in 1910. There, he met other notable artists and encountered art movements such as Fauvism and Cubism. Under the influence of these new acquaintances, Chagall developed his unique style. Indeed, his dream-like paintings are a hybrid of Cubism, Expressionism, Abstraction, Fauvism and Symbolism.
