Chagall at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Belarusan-French painter, printmaker, and designer. After studying painting in St. Petersburg, he moved to Paris in 1910. He exhibited at the Salon des Indé pendants and had a one-man show in Berlin in 1914. On a visit home he was caught by the outbreak of World War I and then by the Bolshevik revolution. He was named head of the revolutionary art school in Vitebsk, but in 1923 he was able to return to Paris. There he launched a career in printmaking, producing hundreds of etchings for special editions of books. In 1941 he left for New York, where he designed sets and costumes for I. Stravinsky's ballet The Firebird. After settling again in France in 1948, he produced stained-glass windows and murals for public buildings in Jerusalem, Paris, and the U.S. His distinctive style of fairy-tale fantasy drew principally on memories of Jewish life and folklore in Belarus and the Bible.
