Marc Chagall was profoundly inspired by the Bible throughout his career, producing biblical works in a broad array of mediums. Discover how his early years in Vitebsk and St. Petersburg, his immersion in the early 20th-century Parisian avant-garde, the Russian Revolution, his 1931 visit to Palestine, and the Holocaust shaped his uniquely modern visual interpretations of the core text of the Jewish people.
