Part of the Jewish Encounter seriesNovelist and critic Jonathan Wilson clears away the sentimental mists surrounding an artist whose career spanned two world wars, the Russian Revolution, the Holocaust, and the birth of the State of Israel. Marc Chagall’s work addresses these transforming events, but his ambivalence about his role as a Jewish artist adds an intriguing wrinkle to common.

Marc Chagall, was a prolific Russian artist whose bright, whimsical, and iconic works catapulted his name into the forefront of the art world.
