About the Artist
Marc Chagall was a Russian-French artist of Belarusian Jewish origin. An early modernist, he was associated with several major artistic styles and created works in a wide range of artistic formats, including painting, drawings, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramics, tapestries and fine art prints. Chagall was one of the few artists to exhibit at the Louvre during his lifetime and he painted the ceiling of the Opéra Garnier in Paris. In 2017, Chagall’s work, Les Amoureux (The Lovers), sold for a staggering $28.5 million at Sotheby’s New York. Sotheby’s claimed the painting encapsulated Chagall’s two greatest passions; Bella and Paris.
