A Tale of Two Worlds

An exhibition dedicated to the paintings of the great Russian artist Marc Chagall at the MUDEC in Milan, an extraordinary journey in collaboration with the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

“A Tale of Two Worlds”, this is the title of the exhibition dedicated to Marc Chagall (Lyzna, 1887- Saint Paul de Vence, 1985) at MUDEC, Milan. Curated by the Israel Museum of Jerusalem, the show illustrates the work of the great artist who came from the Russian empire and was born into a Jewish family to which he always remained attached. His paintings reveal strong Yiddish roots, longing for his homeland, today’s Belarus, and his great love for his wife Bella Rosenfeld, whom he met in Saint Petersburg in 1909 and married in 1915.

A multifaceted and unique identity, a painter of dreams and of love, an artist who illustrated the Bible trying to rectify a lack of Jewish tradition in the visual arts. An exhibition that is as current as ever, reflecting an important aspect of European culture. Chagall moved to Paris in 1910 where he was influenced by the work of Paul Cézanne. The French city made his fortune: an international artist, beyond time and style, in Russian Mark Zacharovič Šagal – this was the artist’s real name – blended French inspirations with the taste of his motherland, merging its colours with shapes, interpreting a unique feeling in his evocative, dreamlike painting. The exhibition inaugurated last 16 March and is open until 31 July 2022.
