Belarus archive publishes Marc Chagalls school assessment sheets
The National Historical Archive of Belarus has published copies of Marc Chagalls assessment sheets issued by a Vitsebsk school in 1900-1904.

In the academic year 1903-1904, the then 17-year-old student of Vitsebsk Municipal School had the assessment score of 4- (according to the five-grade scale). Chagall, who used the name Movshe at that time, does not seem to have been very good at any of the subjects. He got fours (good) even in Art and Drawing; his knowledge of STEM, Russian Language and History was graded only satisfactory. At that, the future artists good behaviour gave him the biggest points fives.

The documents were first exposed in 2012, but it was not until fairly recently that the Historical Archive posted them on Facebook.
