Marc Chagall

  1. 1. MARC CHAGALL 1887-1985
  2. 2. Born in Russia <ul><li>1887 marc was born in Russia to a poor Jewish family </li></ul><ul><li>In Russian school he started showing interest in art (his Mother had to pay 50 (equal to $1.67)rubles for him to attend public high school because he was Jewish). </li></ul><ul><li>At 23 he moved to Paris to study art. </li></ul><ul><li>His paintings reflected the Russian village and features that would be Chagall’s style later. </li></ul>
  3. 3. CHAGALL <ul><li>CHAGALL WAS FAMOUS FOR A MODERN STYLE CALLED FANTASTIC ART WHICH IS SIMILAR TO SURREALISM, IN IT’S DREAMLIKE QUALITY. </li></ul><ul><li>IT IS A MIXTURE OF HIS IMAGINATION, CHILDHOOD MEMORIES AND FOLKTALES. </li></ul><ul><li>HE PAINTED THEATRE BACKGROUNDS SCENES USING HIS OWN DREAMS, FANTASIES AND ABSTRACT. </li></ul><ul><li>OFTEN, A YOUNG MAN LOOKING VERY MUCH LIKE CHAGALL APPEARS IN MANY OF HIS PAINTINGS. </li></ul>
  4. 4. I and the Village, 1911 <ul><li>He created a unique career in virtually every artistic medium, including paintings, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramics, tapestries and fine art prints </li></ul><ul><li>This picture is a great example of cubism-see how there are geometric shapes in the picture. </li></ul>
  5. 5. La Mariee, 1927 <ul><li>La Marie is a great example of Chagall's work! He used contrast in color to make images leap off the canvas. It is apparent that Chagall was showing the woman in high regard, as it the tradition at any wedding. </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Blue House, 1917
  7. 7. The Farmyard, 1954-1962 <ul><li>Along with the white chicken, the cow held a sacred place within Chagall's barnyard menagerie as a vital source of sustenance and a powerful metaphor for life. This picture represents Chagall’s childhood memories as he was in his 70’s. </li></ul>
  8. 8. The Tribe of Benjamin, 1960-1962 (stained glass window)
  9. 9. The Large Circus, 1968 <ul><li>a pioneer of modernism and one of the greatest figurative artists of the twentieth century </li></ul><ul><li>The painting immerses the viewer in the hectic atmosphere that epitomized the early Russian circus. </li></ul>
