Chagall's life spanned pogroms, two World Wars, the Holocaust, and the rebirth of the State of Israel. Chagall's message in words and in works reaffirms that earth and air do co-mingle. The path of Jewish history flows through both earth and air and it is all these elements and more that Chagall portrays in his art.
