Marc Chagall, whose Hebrew name was Moishe Segal and the Russian one Mark Zacharovič Šagal - later transcribed into French as Chagall - was a naturalized French Russian painter.
Born on 7 July 1887 in Vitebsk, a Russian village, from an early age he took part in the artistic movements of the avant-garde without linking himself to them, giving each of them a contribution. He was a very prolific artist due to his constant work and his longevity.
From 1910 to 1914 he was in Paris and came into contact with the Fauves, the Cubists and the Futurists.
In 1923 he returned to Paris and shifted his interest to surrealism, which brought his style closer to a dreamlike and fantastic interpretation of reality.
With the dramatic events of the racial persecution, in the thirties and forties, Chagall went on tackle more realistic and dramatic themes, with a strong expressionist stamp. In 1940 due to the racial laws he and his family were forced to take refuge in the United States where he remained until 1948. Here the death of his wife led him to abandon painting, taking it up again a year later.
The artist's latter years were characterized by intense work (paintings, frescoes, decorations, mosaics, stained glass windows, etc.) and saw the artist receive the highest awards and honors as one of the masters of the twentieth century.
Chagall died in Saint-Paul-de-Vence on March 28, 1988.
