： (Marc Chagall, Engraving, Grandmaster)
Marc Chagall was born in Belarus in 1877 and developed an early interest in art. After studying painting, in 1907 he left Russia for Paris, where he lived in an artist colony on the city’s outskirts. Fusing his own personal, dreamlike imagery with hints of the fauvism and cubism popular in France at the time, Chagall created his most lasting work—including I and the Village (1911)—some of which would be featured in the Salon des Indépendants exhibitions. After returning to Vitebsk for a visit in 1914, the outbreak of WWI trapped Chagall in Russia. He returned to France in 1923 but was forced to flee the country and Nazi persecution during WWII. Finding asylum in the U.S., Chagall became involved in set and costume design before returning to France in 1948. In his later years, he experimented with new art forms and was commissioned to produce numerous large-scale works. Chagall died in St.-Paul-de-Vence in 1985. Marc Chagall was an eclectic and genial experimenter. In more than seventy years of activity, the master expressed himself through every media: from painting, engraving, pottery and drawing to monumental sculpture and stage production. He created a universe in which human figures, animals and sceneries drawn from Jewish traditions live side by side with biblical and religious references. The exhibition reveals Chagall’s worldview and his remarkable skills in engraving.
