Chagall painter, was born in Vitebsk in 1887. At the time of his birth, population
of the city was around 66,000, with half the
population being Jewish. A picturesque city
of churches and synagogues, it was called
"Russian Toledo", after the former cultural
center of the Spanish Empire.
In Russia at that time Jewish children were
not allowed to attend regular Russian
schools or universities due to policies of
discrimination. Their movement within the
city was also restricted. Marc Chagall therefore
received his primary education at the local
Jewish religious school, whereChagall windowudied
Hebrew and the Bible. At the age of 13 his
mother tried to enroll him in a Russian high
school and he recalled.
In 1906, painter Chagall moved to St. Petersburg which was then the capital of Russia and the center of the country's artistic life with its famous art schools. He enrolled in a prestigious art school and studied there for two years. By 1907 artist Chagall had begun painting naturalistic self-portraits and landscapes. During 1908 to 1910, Chagall studied under Léon Bakst at the Zvantseva School of Drawing and Painting. While in St. Petersburg he discovered experimental theater and the painting of such artists as Paul Gauguin.
In 1910 Chagall artist moved to Paris to develop his
own artistic style. Art historian and
curator James Sweeney notes that when
Chagall first arrived in Paris, Cubism was
the dominant art form and French art was
still dominated by the "materialistic
outlook of the 19th century." These notions were foreign to Paris at that time, and as a result his first recognition came not from other artists but from poets such as Blaise Cendrars and Guillaume Apollinaire.
During this period, many Marc Chagall art about Paris appeared, and most are lithograph in colors.
