In this research, the work named "White Crucifixion" (1887-1985) by Marc Chagall, who is considered one of the greatest painters of the 20th century as an example of academic examination, was examined. Marc Chagall grew up in the closed atmosphere of a Jewish community in Eastern Europe and has always maintained his traditions. In many of his works, he depicts the persecution of the Jews in the city on the theme of loneliness. With his work titled “White Crucifixion”, he reacted to the pressure of the Jews. While analyzing Chagall's “White Crucifixion” image within the scope of the research, previous uses of the image of “Crucifixion” will be analyzed with the titles “Historical Context” and “Symbols” of the work. Images and veiled expressions will be analyzed in the work where Jesus is crucified.
