'Marc Chagall: Intersecting Traditions' Fact Sheet

"Marc Chagall: Intersecting Traditions" is a collection of hand-colored etchings, from the collection of the Haggerty Museum of Art at Marquette University in Milwaukee Wisconsin, produced by world-renowned Jewish artist Marc Chagall (1887-1985). Chagall's expressionist work combines and transcends key modern movements in Western Art.

The exhibit features 50 selected etchings from "The Bible" series, a result of the collaboration between Chagall and Parisian publisher Ambroise Vollard. The etchings depict scenes from the Old Testament books of Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Kings, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations and Ezekiel. The works tell familiar Bible stories such as the fall of Adam and Eve, Moses and the burning bush, Jacob's ladder, Noah' s ark and Abraham's sacrifice of his son, Isaac.
