Marc Chagall  

Marc Chagall was born in 1887 in the Jewish quarter on the outskirts of Vitebsk in Byelorussia.

Marc's father was a laborer working in the herring warehouse, and Marc was the eldest of nine brothers.
The poor but leaning and reverent home environment of the Jewish tradition had a great influence on Chagall's art throughout his life.
What continued to exist at the bottom of Chagall's world was his daily life in a small Russian village as a child and the recollection of the Jewish people. And for Chagall, it was a more lively world than the visible world.

And because of this reality that Chagall embraced, the world of his paintings could have the universality to wrap all humankind.
