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 seems to be some abstract chained in area with two people and some animals, the crowd can be seen in the background as well. This is an excellent example of Chagall’s work because while the painting is fairly vivid everything is still discernible and easy to see. The slightly muted background gives the more vivid animals and people a nice contrast that really makes them the main focal point of the piece.
