Marc Chagall Bible: Rahab et les Espions de Jericho

Marc Chagall Bible: Rahab et les Espions de Jericho is an original Lithograph Print from Verve Vol X – Dessins Pour La Bible (Drawings for the Bible). This unique piece Bible: Rahab et les Espions de Jericho is a proof aside from the edition of 50. Catalogue Raisonee: Mourlot 244.

Marc Chagall is most known for his expressive drawings and paintings, but the artist created works in a variety of mediums throughout his 75-year long career. These include book illustrations, stained glass, and stage sets. Chagall was heavily influenced by his childhood in Belarus and Russia, and his Jewish heritage. Moving to Paris in 1910 was also a chance for him to further develop his artistic style. While in France Chagall took inspiration from avant-garde artist contemporaries Fernand Legér, Guillaume Apollinar, and Robert Delaunay. The styles of fauvism and Cubism especially influenced his work while in France. His work was recognized in America in the 1940s, and in 1946 the Museum of Modern Art had a show of nearly 40 years of his work.

Marc Chagall is praised as a pioneer of modern art as one of the greatest figurative painters. He invented a visual language that recorded the thrill and terror of the twentieth century. Chagall is of French-Russian and Jewish heritage, and he lived through the horrors of world wars, revolution and ethnic persecution in Europe between 1914 and 1945. Much of his work is a commentary on his personal connection and disillusionment with this European history. Chagall conveys these messages in a uniquely expressive and dream-like manner.

Honored for his distinct style and pioneering role among Jewish artists, Marc Chagall painted dream-like subjects rooted in personal history and Eastern European folklore. Though he actively engaged in the Parisian artistic community, art for Chagall was first and foremost a means of personal expression. He preferred to be considered separately from other artists, his imagery and allegory uniquely his own.
