Marc Chagall

I am researching Chagall as I think he could help inspire me while creating my Paris book.  From just looking at a few of his paintings I can see they are very surreal and colourful, most of his work has bright colours in and things that don’t make sense. His style is different from many artist as his work looks raw, is full of energy. I really like them, however some do look similar to what a child could do! However they are creative but I don’t think I will be using all of his techniques in my Paris book.
This painting is called ‘The Dance and the Circus’

One thought on “Marc Chagall

  1. Chagall was on the list of “degenerate artists” I gave you to explore. I know you completed this activity, focusing on the work of Otto Dix but it would be interesting to know your thoughts on Chagall’s work being branded worthless by the Nazi regime. Is childlike art good or bad? If it’s ever good, where can it be used? Think about the graphics, advertising or illustration industry.
