Happy Birthday Marc Chagall!
“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.”
–Marc Chagall (July 7, 1887 – March 28, 1985)
Marc Chagall, one of the greatest and least understood master artists of the 20th century, was born Moyshe Segal in Vitebsk, Russia on July 7, 1887. In honor of this modern master’s birthday, Park West Gallery is proud to announce the launch of its new Marc Chagall website.
The website features the Park West Chagall Collection of artwork and includes examples of Chagall’s most important graphic works such as The Bible, The Story of the Exodus, Fables of Fontaine, L’Odyssee and Daphnis & Chloe. The Chagall lithographs featured represent the artist’s innovations and expertise in lithography, for which he is universally known. His most popular themes, including Biblical and Circus, are also featured on the site.
“Chagall was one of the most distinctive and unique artists in history,” says Park West Gallery Director, Morris Shapiro. “His aim was to compete with the beauty of nature and in this way he created his own artistic ‘nature.’ He’s also one of the least understood artists of the modern masters. I hope that our new site will allow people to go deeper into Chagall’s life and work and gain new perspectives to appreciate both.”
