Marc Chagall

 Marc Chagall

He was born as a Jewish-Russian.

Born on 6 July 1887 and died on 28 March 1985.

The type of art he was most interested in was Jewish art combined with Chrstian that included his painting, drawings, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramics, tapestries and fine art prints.

He lived near the city of Vitebsk with his family in Liozna and was the oldest out of his 9 siblings.

Marc had lived in New York but never learnt English. It took him 30 years to learn bad French but never wanted to try English. This would have made his life difficult living in New York.

This piece of art is on the ceiling of Garnier Opera in Paris.

I would love to have this painting from Marc Chagall because it reminds of all those reigning monarchs in the 1800s dancing in a ball with the princesses.
