About the Art

Marc Chagall was a pioneer for Jewish artists, he had a distinct style of painting dream like scenes of personal history and European folklore. He was a painter, printmaker, book illustrator, and he even made stained glass windows. He began experimenting with Cubism in 1910 when he moved to Paris and his style is considered a mixture of Cubism, Fauvism, and Symbolism. His supernatural subjects are also thought to have significantly influenced surrealism.

Depicted in this piece is a red horse pulling a sleigh. The name of the painting, Le Cheval Rouge, translates to red horse. The horse is the most vivid colored thing in the piece making it the main focal point. The white snow contrasts nicely with the horse as well and really allows it to stand out. The houses underneath them could be reflecting off of water but it still has a very fantastical look like the woman, duck, and horse were looking over the edge of the world.
