Marc Chagall: Original Artists selling show
Wednesday 27 February to Sunday 24 March
We are delighted to offer for sale, a range of prints by Marc Chagall.
This Exhibition is on tour from the Goldmark Gallery, in Uppingham.
Chagall was born in Vitebsk, Russia in 1887. After studying in st Petersburg he went to Paris where he befriended the avant-garde circle of artists. in 1917 he returned to his native vitebsk where he was made Director and Commissar of Fine Art. however, his fantasy-based work irked the conservative authorities so he left for Moscow to design for the new Jewish Theatre.
Returning to Paris in 1923 he met the art dealer Vollard for whom he illustrated, ‘Gogol’s Dead Souls’ and ‘The Fables of La Fontaine’. Between 1941-47 he moved between occupied France and the USA, eventually settling near Nice.
Chagall was a prolific artist, his work reminiscent of Jewish life, bible stories and of the folklore from his early years in Russia. He died in 1985.
