Marc Chagall, Light and Colour in Southern France

1/6-26/8|10:00-19:00, no admittance after 18:30 (Closed on Mondays)     Macao Museum of Art     Free admission

One of the major artists of the 20th century, Marc Chagall (1887-1985) was born in White Russia (present-day Belarus) and settled in the South of France in the 1950s. His world is unique, nurtured by the many cultural influences encountered during his life and marked by war and exile. Marc Chagall, Light and Colour in Southern France explores the omnipresence of light and colour in his work from the 1950s to the 1970s, inspired by the dazzling Mediterranean Sea and bright landscapes of the French Riviera.

This first exhibition in Macao dedicated to Marc Chagall will feature a selection of works (paintings, gouaches, lithographs, costumes and tapestries) which highlight the pre-eminence of light and colour in his creations.

Organised by the Macao Museum of Art under the Cultural Affairs Bureau of the Macao S.A.R. Government, this exhibition has been made possible thanks to the precious help of the Musée National Marc Chagall in Nice, Opéra national de Paris, in collaboration with Bouquinerie de l’Institut, Cécile Léon Art Projects in Paris, and with the generous support of the Chagall Estate.
