New York exhibit spotlights the 'interfaith' art of Marc Chagall

A New York City art exhibit is spotlighting the biblically-inspired art of Marc Chagall, a Russian exile whose work depicted both Jewish and Christian symbols but remained rooted in an earth-bound, humane view of the world and of religious life, reports Ecumenical News International.

"Chagall was a fascinating figure who had a foot in both [Jewish and Christian] worlds," said Paul Tabor, director of exhibitions of the Museum of Biblical Art in Manhattan, or the Mobia as it is known, the site of "Chagall's Bible: Mystical Storytelling", an exhibit which runs until 18 January. Chagall is perhaps most famous for his paintings and for stained glass creations in both Christian and Jewish places of worship, including St. Stephen's Cathedral in Mainz, Germany, and the synagogue of the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem.
