Marc Chagall, Moïse et les tables de la loi, 1962

Marc Chagall’s fascination with religion greatly inspires much of his work. Chagall felt a deep connection to his Hasidic heritage and embraces both Christian and Jewish themes in his work. His unification of these two separate religions reminds his viewers of their familiar origins. The visual metaphors he uses to depict his faith reflects his wish to convey a universal message of reconciling of differences.
