Chagall: Art and Religion

Rabbi David Stern, Senior Rabbi of Temple Emanu-El of Dallas, joins Olivier Meslay, Associate Director of Curatorial Affairs and The Barbara Thomas Lemmon Curator of European Art, for a conversation about the relationship between art and religion in Marc Chagall's work. Raised in Russia, Chagall broke with the traditions of his religion to depict subjects and themes from the Bible in his art. Although he was not strictly observant, the artist remained intensely proud of his Russian Jewish upbringing, the memories of which he portrayed throughout his career.
