Redirected from Chagall

Marc Chagall (July 7, 1887 - March 28, 1985) was a French painter of Russian origin.

He was born Mark Zakharovich Shagal in Vitsebsk, Belarus. He was one of the most important artists of surrealism, and in his works can be seen the resonance of fantasy and dreams.

He died on March 28, 1985 and is buried in the Saint Paul Town Cemetery, Saint-Paul de Vence (near Nice), France.

Major works include "I and the Village" (1911,), "Green Violinist" (1923-24, Guggenheim Museum, New York), "The Birthday" (1915, ), "Solitude" (1933, Tel-Aviv Museum). Today, a Chagall painting can sell for more than US\$6 million.

His work can be found in the Paris Opera Garnier[?], First National Bank Plaza of downtown Chicago, New York Metropolitan Opera House, cathedral of Metz France, and a small church in Mainz.
