Exhibition: Marc Chagall

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 21-07-2012 04-11-2012 15 Exhibition: Marc Chagall Marc Chagall is a major exhibition that includes a significant selection of about half of Chagall’s 1957 series of hand-colored etchings of Bible stories, a series never before seen on Long Island. The exhibition portrays this important and loved artist as a storyteller, demonstrating how Chagall, throughout a long and distinguished career, incorporated facets of his early Russian-Jewish heritage into multilayered works. Chagall’s storytelling paintings portray a fantastic pictorial world where heaven and earth seem to meet. It’s a world where people and animals—cows, goats, donkeys, horses and birds—float upside down or sideways, irrespective of the laws of gravity, and couples are always in love. Chagall’s hypersensitive imagination is palpable as he shares with the viewer his memories of family in brilliantly colored works set amidst the houses and streets of his native Vitebsk. The exhibition runs through November 4, 2012. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=113279 Nassau County Museum of Art true DD/MM/YYYY
