Marc Chagall(1887-1985, born Mark Zakharovich Shagal in Vitebsk), a prominent figure in 20th century art, is particularly well-known for his stained glass. Best known for the Jerusalem Windows and Peace for the United Nations (1964), his last monumental work in the medium was stained glass windows for chapel of Le Saillant in Corrèze. In 1914, Chagall first exhibited two of his works, Self-Portrait with Seven Fingers and The Fiddler, at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris. In June of that year, he had his first one-man show at the Galerie Der Sturm in Berlin. Chagall then traveled to Vitebsk, his hometown, intending to stay for a short visit, butthe outbreak of WWI prevented him from returning to Paris, where he would later settle. Chagall created his first stained glass windows (for the church of Le Plateau d'Assy in Haute-Savoie) in 1957. Chagall was influenced by Cubism, Fauvism and Surrealism. His works, executed in a wide variety of media, from oils to stained glass, often featured subjects drawn from Russian village life, Jewish folklore and Hasidic mysticism. Two Items. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 39x20.
