A Guided Visit to the
Join us on Saturday, April 18, for a guided visit of the Marc Chagall Retrospective. Over 200 works of Marc Chagall have been gathered worldwide for this major retrospective exhibition. From early paintings of 1908 to his final, monumental works of the 1980s, the show offers a rich overview of the painter’s artistic career.
The exhibition presents the main themes of his work, in particular his connection with Jewish culture, the iconography of the Jewish village, and folk traditions. It also covers his discovery of 17th century literature –such as La Fontaine– the revelation of light, and the particular use of color.
Special attention is given to his Russian period at a time his personal style stands out in an avant-garde art scene featured by the cubist revolution. The original poetic language of Chagall is faithfully revived and visitors are immersed in his amazing artistic world influenced by different cultures and traditions.
This show brings together artworks from over twenty international institutions: Tate, MoMA New York, Centre Pompidou, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Beyeler Foundation, Maeght Foundation, Nagoya City Art Museum Japan, the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, etc.
Our guide will once again be the excellent Lieve De Jonghe.
