Although many view Marc Chagall (Russian, 1887-1985) as the quintessential artist of Jewish subjects, several notable 19th century European painters before him specialized in Jewish scenes. Distinct from much of Chagall’s avant-garde fantastical imagery of the 20th century, however, these earlier artists’ Jewish themes were painted in a realistic style, often capturing specific religious traditions. This course will examine the lives and works of these artists and discuss the transition to Chagall’s modernist style and his enduring reputation.
