An early Modernist artist, Marc Chagall (1887 – 1985) was associated with several artistic styles and created art through paintings, drawings, illustrations, stained-glass, stage sets, ceramics, tapestries, and fine art prints. Chagall was a Russian-French artist of Belarusian Jewish origin. He lived in Paris during modernism's "golden age" and synthesized Cubism, Symbolism, Fauvism, and Surrealism. Chagall's paintings were a blend of fantasy, nostalgia, and religious imagery. During World War II he was rescued from the Nazis and moved to the United States where he achieved even greater international success as an artist. Chagall later moved back to France and was the last surviving master of European modernism before his death in 1985.
