The Fiddler by Marc Chagall, 1912–1913

Whimsical, colorful, and populated with images from the stories of his native Russian culture, Marc Chagall’s oeuvre is both emotionally and poetically dream-based in a style that transcends reason and logic. He forged his path from his early days in a Russian shtetl to his adult years in France while embracing his identity as part of the Jewish artistic tradition.

Chagall’s creative energy pushed him to experiment in various media including painting, sets for plays and ballets, etchings, stained glass, mosaics, and tapestry. His style is easily recognizable and considered a precursor for Modernist art while simultaneously embracing traditional subjects drawn from his religious roots.

Joseph Cassar explores Chagall’s work, such as his tapestries at the Knesset in Israel and the Paris Opera House ceiling, that have made him a universally beloved artist.
