Chagall in Frankfurt 04.11.2022 - 20.02.2023
In a major exhibition, the SCHIRN sheds light on a so far little-known side of his oeuvre: Chagall’s works of the 1930s and 1940s, in which the artist’s colorful palette becomes darker.
It presents important works from the 1930s, in which Chagall focused more and more on the Jewish world, numerous self-portraits, his orientation toward allegorical and Biblical themes, and the important designs in exile for the ballets "Aleko" (1942) and "The Firebird" (1945).
The exhibition also addresses the artist’s recurring preoccupation with his hometown, Vitebsk, and main works such as "The Falling Angel" (1923/1933/1947). Altogether, the SCHIRN will provide a new and highly relevant view of the oeuvre of one of the most important artists of the twentieth century.
