Marc Zakharovich Chagall is famous for creating dreamlike figurative, narrative, and poetic art consisting of lively colors and emphasizing painterly qualities. The mystical and magical aspect of his work sets him apart from other modern masters of his time and establishes him as a predecessor of Surrealism.
Chagall connected seemingly disparate techniques and themes to create unique masterpieces commenting on fine art aesthetics, beauty, and norms. Raised Hasidic, he often incorporated Jewish folklore in his paintings of pastures, towns, and Paris.
In 1950 Marc Chagall met Atelier Mourlot director Fernand Mourlot and lithograph master printer Charles Sorlier, with whom he subsequently collaborated artistically to produce stunning original lithographs for 35 years, until he died in 1985 at the age of 97. Over time, Chagall, Mourlot, and Sorlier grew very close and united in their collaborative artistic efforts. Sorlier attributes the talent he is credited with to Chagall’s genius, of which he claims a particle was passed on to him during the time they spent working together.
