Marc Chagall was born in Vitebsk, Belorussia in 1887. He began his work in the Pen workshops in Vitebsk in 1906 and Bakst in St. Petersburg in 1907. He travelled to Paris in 1911 where his encounters with the Avant-Gardists were decisive. In 1914, the first exhibition of monographs was organized in Berlin before his return to Vitebsk. Chagall became Public Superintendent of Fine Arts and founded an art school. The painter left Russia definitively in 1923 and moved to Paris where he developed a personal style that demonstrated the marriage of iconography and Jewish, Russian and French culture. Upon his return in 1948 from self-imposed exile in the United States during World War II, Chagall became one of the greatest artists of the 20th Century - a marvellous colorist and story teller - until his death in 1985 at Saint-Paul, France.
