Theintercultural dialogue through one of the artists who is most deeply involved in the vicissitudes of the 20th century. Chagall is the artist who might possibly best personify the desire of peace and the dialogue between different cultures after the two World Wars, what he transmits throughout the whole of his work.
Strong women. Chagall and the rich and diverse feminine universe. Love and human passions are also present in the numerous books of the Bible. The exhibition showcases the elevation of feminine values depicted in the Bible, which remain one of the lesser-known aspects to the general public. Chagall is a great scholar of the Bible, which he regarded as the greatest poetic source of all time. Chagall dedicated a significant series of artworks to the universal and timeless values of women, inspired by the age-old stories of the sacred texts.
Human passions. Chagall was an artist of great spirituality and strong optimism. Therefore, he was able to depict with great irony the human passions that man carries to the extreme, such as gluttony, pride, anger, or lust, in what are considered “The Seven Deadly Sins.”
Painting and words. Chagall and literature. Chagall is one of the most representative examples of the relationship between painting and words in 20th-century art. As soon as Ambroise Vollard, the great art dealer of Picasso, Matisse, and Cézanne, met the painter, he commissioned him to illustrate some of the most important texts in the artistic tradition. In this way, Marc Chagall collaborated, for instance, with the poet and essayist Leopold Sedar Senghor, who would become the President of Senegal, on various projects that combined painting and words, such as the set of lithographs included in this exhibition.
