Film: Chagall Noon Film: Chagall
Completed just a month after his death in 1985, this film presents the most authoritative film biography of artist Marc Chagall. Weaving his paintings with archival footage and numerous interviews with the artist, it chronicles the long, creative arc of Chagall's life, from his birth in Czarist Russia in 1887 through almost the entirety of the 20th century. A natural Surrealist long before its theory was established, Chagall passed in and out of notoriety, both in Paris and New York. As this film shows, despite his friendship with Andre Breton and other greats, Chagall pursued his own unique artistic vision. 43 minutes.

This technique has been favored by artists since the 17th century and was explored by Rembrandt, Picasso, Matisse, Degas, Chagall and Gauguin. Painter and printmaker Claire Farrell received her training from Duke University, the University of South Carolina, Santa Raparata Art School in Florence, Italy, and Penland School of Craft and Design.
