Featuring over 50 original works, Marc Chagall: Intersecting Traditions is a series of hand water colored etchings depicting scenes from the Old Testament. As
a modern, Jewish artist, Chagall developed a unique visual vocabulary that synthesized

Old Testament narratives as a set of stories and recurring themes to be broadly interpreted,
Marc Chagall was able to produce a deeply human and personal body of work that remains
Beatrice and Patrick Haggerty gifted the complete portfolio of prints to the Haggerty
Museum at Marquette University, Mr. Haggerty’s alma mater, in 1980. We are grateful
to their son Patrick Haggerty and the Haggerty Family Foundation for the generous
support in making this exhibition possible.
