Floating, whimsical, and often dreamlike in their radical compressions of space and time, Marc Chagall's art continues to delight contemporary viewers but may have lost some of its power to astound. Yet this devoutly Jewish artist's illustrations for the Bible defy his faith's proscription against images, and at the same time fly in the face of traditional Christian iconography. Dr. Paula Wisotzki from Loyola's art history department will explore this series of prints and consider related projects from Chagall's career, some of which brought him in direct contact with Chicago's art world.
