Vladimir Prokoptsov: Chagall is about Belarus, France and Russia

Vladimir Prokoptsov, director of the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus, has given an interview to the TV program Big Breakfast on the CTV. He touched on the ethnicity of famous artists.

Vladimir Prokoptsov, director of the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus:
Everyone thinks that the same Chagall is a French artist or a Russian artist.

I am very philosophical about this.

Chagall is over Belarus, over France, over Russia. He is a planetary artist, he belongs to everyone.
