“In our life there is a single color, as on an artist’s palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love”

For this special exhibition, the collection of artworks have been loaned from the Centre Pompidou, the Marc Chagall Museum in Vitebsk, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of the History of Jews in Russia and the National Museum of Marc Chagall in Nice. Many of the artworks will be showing for the first time in Russia.

The concept behind this exhibition is based on Marc Chagall’s words:

To me, painting seemed to be some sort of the window which let me fly to the other world

Marc Chagall believed in the spiritual idea that he was born between heaven and earth. He felt that he resided in this “in between” space which he often portrayed in his artworks. Chagall constantly combined his reality together with symbolism, mysticism and imagination to describe his emotions.

In order to give the visitor a glimpse into Chagall’s world and understand how it reflects in his art, the exhibition will also display household and religious objects from the collection of the Museum of Jewish History in Russia. These objects were carefully chosen to provide us with a information about Chagall’s roots and how this impacted on him and his art throughout his life.
