Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in England
Chagall: Modern Master

Chagall: Modern Master
LIVERPOOL  •  Tate Liverpool  •  Ongoing
The exhibition showcases Chagall as a passionate visionary and pioneer of the avant-garde, who combined his own response to the art movements of the day with an open display of affection for his native Russia and Hasidic Jewish heritage. Chagall: Modern Master seeks to demonstrate the depth and diversity of Chagallís art as it matured during the pivotal years of 1911Ė1922.

The exhibition brings together more than seventy paintings and drawings from major institutions and private collections across the world. The works will be presented in a broadly chronological order, with thematic groupings charting Chagallís encounters with avant-garde artistic movements, highlighting how he combined these new pictorial languages with his own imaginative and fantastical motifs to create his innovative and expressive works. A major highlight of the exhibition is the rare presentation of the seven large-scale murals designed by Chagall for the State Yiddish Chamber Theatre in Moscow in 1920, on loan from The State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow.
