Marc Zakharovich Chagall was a French artist of Russian descent, who rose to prominence in the 20th century and is particularly famed for be-ing an extremely versatile artist, who produced works across a vast genre during his career that spanned several decades. Chagall was a modernist and one of the earliest ones, which is why it would not be an ex-aggeration to say that he was an extremely influential artist. According to a prominent art critic, his art had a special characteristic that put forward his Jewish sensibilities like no other artist of the time. However, it is important to point out that Chagall himself was not a religious man and had stated that his art was universal in nature without any religious overtones. Chagall is counted among the most important pioneers of modernism in art and some of his most well-known exhibits are done on stained glass. Chagall was without doubt a deep thinker and was re-sponsible for using Fauvism, Symbolism and Cubism in his work to give rise to a completely new artistic style. He was a remarkably cosmopolitan artist who spent his life in different countries across Europe and became an influence everywhere he went.
