Marc Chagall was a renowned Jewish artist born July 7, 1887 in Vitebsk, Russia, who later moved to Paris and gained French citizenship. Chagall studied at the Imperial Society for the Protection of the Arts in Saint Petersburg. He was a member of the Ecole de Paris and was part of the Salon des Indépendants and the Salon d’Automne in the early 1900s. In addition to Paris and St. Petersburg, Chagall traveled and exhibited globally including Amsterdam, Jerusalem and New York City. Having lived through World War I and World War II, his work was influenced by these events. Chagall’s work is inspired by his Jewish heritage and his home town of Vitebsk, and incorporates elements of Fauvism and Cubism as well as aspects of traditional Russian and Jewish folk art. His work has been exhibited and collected internationally both privately and by institutions including the Guggenheim, the Museum of Modern Art, Centre Pompidou and Tate Modern.
