Marc Chagall was originally from Russia but finally of France. His art work, spanning most of the 20th century, captured his love of Bella, his wife and muse. Bella floats in the sky with Marc so most children have seen this art. They just can't put the name Chagall with it. If they somehow missed Bella, then there are the fantastic creatures, animals and monsters which Chagall brings to life, including ballet sets and costumes of them.

Marc Chagall, 1887 – 1985, was a Russian artist of Belarusian Jewish origin. He disliked being associated with any one art style so instead created in every artistic medium, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints. Chagall said his art was, "not the dream of one people but of all humanity," when he was called a "Jewish artist."
Chagall painted large paintings and made large stained glass art, including windows for the cathedrals of Reims and Metz, windows for the UN, and the Jerusalem Windows in Israel. He painted part of the ceiling of the Paris Opéra.
Chagall was generally classed as an avant-garde pioneer of modernism. He painted in the Cubism, Symbolist, Fauvist, and Surrealist styles yet his Jewish longings shone through in every period. His work could be seen as one long remembrance of his former life in his native village of Vitebsk. Although he became French and died French, his soul and his art always had one foot back in Russia.
Chagall published a letter in a Paris weekly, "To the Paris Artists” shortly after the Allied liberation of Paris, August 19, 1944 – August 25, 1944:
"In recent years I have felt unhappy that I couldn't be with you, my friends. My enemy forced me to take the road of exile. On that tragic road, I lost my wife, the companion of my life, the woman who was my inspiration. I want to say to my friends in France that she joins me in this greeting, she who loved France and French art so faithfully. Her last joy was the liberation of Paris... Now, when Paris is liberated, when the art of France is resurrected, the whole world too will, once and for all, be free of the satanic enemies who wanted to annihilate not just the body but also the soul—the soul, without which there is no life, no artistic creativity."
