Lithograph After Marc Chagall; pencil bears the signature, size approx. 14 x 11 in. Marc Zakharovich Chagall (July 6th 1887 – March 28th 1985) The quintessential Jewish artist of the twentieth century Marc Chagall was a Russian-born Jew whose deep faith displayed itself repeatedly throughout his body of work. In addition to Old Testament themes, Russian village life was a common favorite subject. His dreamy, vividly-colored, often playful pieces caused him to be associated with the Surrealists (a charge he vigorously denied). Besides painting, Chagall's huge output included book illustration, set and costume design, murals, lithography and a number of truly amazing stained glass windows.
