Marc Chagall was born in Vitebsk, Russia on July 7, 1887. He studied at the Imperial Society for the Protection of the Arts in Saint Petersburg from 1907-10. He moved to Paris in 1910 and had his first encounters with Cubism and Fauvism while in contact with Guillaume Apollinaire and Robert Delaunay. He participated in the Salon des Indépendants and the salon d'Automne in 1912; his first solo show was held in Berlin in 1914. While visiting Russia, World War I broke out, so he was unable to return to Paris. While in Russia, he founded the Vitebsk Popular Art School and executed stage designs for the State Jewish Chamber Theater in Moscow. During World War II, Chagall fled to the US, and the Museum of Modern Art awarded him a retrospective in 1946. He returned to France in 1948 and would reside there until his death in 1985. During the time he resided in France, Chagall travelled extensively and was the subject of many major exhibitions across Europe and the US.
