Marc Chagall, born Movsha Zakharovich Shagal, was a French painter of Jewish-Belarusian descent. Chagall has a very distinctive style that has a dreamy feel to it. He drew his inspiration from Russian folk art and life, his memories of his youth and the role of Judaism in it. He combined elements of this with the modern styles he knew from Paris, among others. He also painted Bible scenes with great frequency.
