Marc Chagall was a pioneer for Jewish artists, he had a distinct style of painting dream like scenes of personal history and European folklore. He was a painter, printmaker, book illustrator, and he even made stained glass windows. He began experimenting with Cubism in 1910 when he moved to Paris and his style is considered a mixture of Cubism, Fauvism, and Symbolism. His supernatural subjects are also thought to have significantly influenced surrealism.

Ruth goes out to the fields to glean the grain left behind after the harvest when she returns to Bethlehem with her mother-in-law, Naomi. The seated figure gesturing towards Ruth could be Naomi or Boaz, the man who owns the land she is on. Throwing a bundle of golden wheat over her shoulder, Ruth bends her head and listens to her companion. Organic swathes of crimson and umber unite the two figures and the bright, scattered white separating it creates a beautiful contrast.
