Thanks to the generosity of Bella and Meret Mayer, a large number of works have been brought together for this exhibition. They include 127 drawings, 5 ceramics and 7 sculptures by the artist. They mainly concern three themes. Firstly, preparatory drawings for costumes and stage curtains for Igor Stravinsky’s ballet “The Firebird”. Next, Chagall’s sketches and models for his famous work on the ceiling of the Opéra Garnier. And finally, a variety of post-war collages, ceramics and sculptures.
