Apocalypse in Lilac, Capriccio is a 1945 gouache painting by the Russian-born artist Marc Chagall. The 20-inch by 14-inch work was created by Chagall in response to the devastation brought by the Holocaust; its imagery consists of a crucified Jesus Christ screaming at a Nazi storm trooper while other acts of violence – another crucifixion, a man being hanged and an adult male stabbing a child – can be seen in the background while an inverted clock falls out of the sky.
