Mark Chagall (July 6, 1887 — March 28, 1985) is considered one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. His works most often were inspired by traditional Jewish folklore. An early art modernist, Chagall embraced a number of different artistic styles. In the medium of stained glass, he produced beautiful windows for the cathedrals of Reims and Metz, the UN, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem.
Quotes: “In our life there is a single color, as on an artist’s palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love.” | “When I am finishing a picture, I hold some God-made object up to it — a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand — as a final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there’s a clash between the two, it’s bad art.”
