Marc Chagall (born Moishe Segal) was of Jewish origin. Certainly this did not make life easy for him in his youth, in the avowedly anti-Semitic Russia of the time. Chagall actively participated in the Russian Revolution, so much so that the Soviet Minister of Culture appointed him Commissioner of Art in the Vitebsk region. In Chagall's paintings, Russian and Jewish roots echo, filtered by a sort of childish naivety that makes his visual language of immediate impact.
