Particularity of Chagall's art lies in the fact that instead of a serial narrative he shows to us individual episodes and characters - inhabitants of heaven and spiritual leaders of the people. They are all shown in close up, generally, as a rule, without certain place and time. The artist's works are easy to naive in execution, as if they were drawn by a child, but with what primordial power these lines and spots are organized. The biblical theme was the leitmotif of the entire work of Marc Chagall. The Bible came alive, touched by his brush, the ancient texts blazed with new fire of rosen sacrament.
In Chagall's creations Paradise appears in its traditional understanding, as a state (place) of eternal perfect life (existence, reality) in bliss, in harmony with nature (universe), untouched by time and death. Adam and Eve are depicted as a whole, what literally reflects the text of the Bible.
The Expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise is an episode of Biblical tradition (the Book of Genesis), following a Fall from Grace. The subject of Expulsion is one of the most common in art.
