Chagall, Marc (1887–1985), Russian painter. His style is characterized by dreamlike, lyrical fantasy and bright but never harsh colors. His subjects are often derived from the traditions of folklore and Jewish life in Russia before World War I. Chagall also illustrated a number of books and created memorable works in stained glass. Two large murals (1966) are in the Metropolitan Opera House, New York City.
