CHAGALL AND THE BIBLE with JEAN BLOCH ROSENSAFT Director, Dr. Bernard Heller Museum, HUC/New York. Marc Chagall was profoundly inspired by the Bible throughout his career, producing biblical works in a broad array of mediums, including paintings, etchings, sculptures, mosaics, tapestries, stained-glass windows, ceramics, and stage set designs. Discover how memories of his youth in Vitebsk, the Russian Revolution, his 1931 visit to Palestine, the Holocaust, his personal religiosity, and his admiration for the old masters, informed his imagination to create uniquely modern visual interpretations of the core text of the Jewish people. huc.edu
