Modern Master. An exhibition featuring some 90 paintings and works on paper by Marc Chagall. The exhibition focuses on the years from 1911 to 1922 - a formative period in his artistic career. It covers his sojourn in Paris, the trip to Berlin and his exhibition at the Galerie Der Sturm.
The Kunsthaus Zürich is staging an exhibition featuring some 90 paintings and works on paper by Marc Chagall (1887–1985). Chagall is one of the best known and most popular artists of the 20th century. His images of Russian village life, floating figures, flying cows and roosters are world-famous. Now the Kunsthaus Zürich is dispelling some of the clichés on which his belated fame is based and recognizing his contribution to the avant garde.
The exhibition focuses on the years from 1911 to 1922 – a formative period in Chagall’s artistic career. It covers his sojourn in Paris before the First World War, his trip to Berlin and his exhibition there in 1914 at the Galerie Der Sturm, as well as the period spent in his native Russia, a country torn apart by revolution. These are the years in which Chagall establishes himself as a modern master.
