MARC ZAKHAROVICH CHAGALL (/ʃəˈɡɑːl/ shə-GAHL ; born MOISHE ZAKHAROVICH SHAGALOV; 6 July 1887 – 28 March 1985) was a Russian -French artist of Belarusian Jewish origin.

According to art historian Michael J. Lewis, Chagall was considered to be "the last survivor of the first generation of European modernists"
