When Marc Chagall Painted Jesus Over And Over Again
"Chagall had about a five-year period during the Second World War in which he became utterly obsessed with painting Jesus Christ. ... Looking at the paintings, one thing is clear right away. The paintings have little to do with Jesus as we usually see him - the central figure in the Christian Passion narrative. Chagall's Jesus is a Jewish Jesus through and through."
