This lithograph is signed and dedicated to "Mr. Riskin." Growing up in Vitebsk, young Chagall was fascinated by the stained glass artist Mr. Riskin at his village temple.
Russian by birth, Marc Chagall was educated in St. Petersburg and Paris, eventually emigrating to France in 1923. His early influences were Russian expressionism and French cubism, but Chagall created a style that was unique to the 20th century. His mastery of color suffuses his paintings and prints as well as the stained glass made for European cathedrals.
