Artist of the Day: Marc Chagall
Posted by dorian on August 17, 2009
Marc Chagall (1887-1985) was a Russian-Jewish painter of the 20th Century and one of the best known representatives of the Russian Avant-Garde in the West. Chagall painted in a style all his own, combining elements of Expressionism, Symbolism, Cubism and, to a lesser degree, other Modernist art movements. A prolific and multi-faceted artist, Chagall left behind him thousands of works in many different techniques and media that have established him as one of the foremost artists of the 20th Century.
one of my favorites The Fiddler. (Le violoniste). 1912-13. Oil on canvas.
another favorite The Three Candles. 1938-40. Oil on canvas.
