Chagall: Love, War & Exile

Comments Off on Chagall: Love, War & Exile

The art of Marc Chagall (1887–1985), one of the foremost artists of the 20th century who drew on folk art, the Russian Christian icon tradition, Cubism, and Surrealism, is the focus of a major exhibit at New York’s Jewish Museum (through February 2, 2014). The works in the exhibit, from the rise of fascism in the 1930s through 1948, illuminate an artist responding to the suffering inflicted by war and to his own personal losses and intimate sorrows. It includes paintings and works on paper as well as letters, poems, photos, and ephemera.
