Marc Chagall (1887-1985) was born in Belorussia, lived mostly in Paris, and fled the Nazis because of his Jewish heritage. A painter, draughtsman, printmaker, designer, illustrator, sculptor, ceramicist and writer of Belarussian birth. A prolific artist, Chagall excelled in the European tradition of subject painting and distinguished himself as an expressive colourist. He was recognized as a major figure of the Ecole de Paris, especially in the later 1920s and the 1930s. His paintings from the first years in Paris combined the fragmented forms of Cubism with the brilliant colors and fanciful images from of the Russian-Jewish folk tradition: Chagall created a personal mythology; bringing poetry back into painting through subject matter that does not describe but rather imagines a world of events and sensations, painted without sacrificing formal concerns. He brought metaphor and dreams into French formalism, for his paintings use color and form to organize the emblematic irrationality. He was recognized as a major figure of the Ecole de Paris, especially in the later 1920s and the 1930s. His characteristic style, although developed in the years before World War I, underwent little progression throughout his long career. In his last years he was regarded as a leading artist in stained glass. Besides his paintings and glass-windows for Roman-Catholic cathedrals and Jewish synagogues, he created a rich plethora of prints. As color was of such great essence for his work, lithography became the artist's favorite technique.
