Marc Chagall was born July 7 1887 in the village of Vitebsk, Belarus. From a modest family of gentle countryside, he developed a pronounced interest for drawing from inspiration of many of his works that recall some sketches done with premium pencils. His inspiration imbibed the Cubist style followed a few years later, the arrival of surrealism in Europe. Involved in Jewish theatre, he also took part into painting their decorations during World War II. Chagall and his wife, of Jewish origins, were forced into exile in New York where war and the painful images showed up in his work. It was during his passing in America that he discovered lithography and printing techniques. Once the war ended, they returned to Europe to settle specifically in France where he concludes his work by addressing ceramics, sculpture and stained glass. His work is recognized worldwide as well as for Picasso and Matisse.
