Exhibition “Political Chagall, the cry of freedom”

Article publié le 13 May 2024

From 1 June to 16 September 2024 at Musée national Marc Chagall

From his native shtetl to the great cities of today’s world, Marc Chagall has lived through the ages. He lived through great encounters in artistic hives where Bohemian influences buzzed, then by sharing his work on the stained-glass windows of a hospital in Jerusalem and a cathedral in Metz. Or, looking up at the world from the ceiling of the Opéra de Paris, a man who was already old but as curious as ever. But he also confronted the violence of man and the limits crossed by executioners from generation to generation. These traces are also present in his work and are presented in this exhibition.
