Marc Chagall exhibition in Cirencester!

Wetpaint Gallery in Cirencester is holding an exhibition of original lithographs of Marc Chagall from 8 Sept 2012 – 6 Oct 2012. Marc Chagall a Russian born painter is one of the 20th century’s best loved artists and one of the great masters of the School of Paris whom was also praised as an influence on surrealism.
I love his intense colours and the beautiful drawing.

I remember years ago I was very happy to see another beautiful exhibition in the Museum of Contemporary Art, Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation Andros, Greece. The Museum of Modern Art presented its first thematic exhibition, entitled The Mediterranean Chagall: a ‘triptych’ (the Holy Land – Greece – the Cote d’Azur) (26/6/1994 – 18/9/1994) which, through the works of the artist (oil paintings, water-colours, gouaches, pastels, drawings, prints as well as some maquettes of well-known stained glass pieces and mosaics) had as its objective an examination of his relationship with the Mediterranean.

I was so pleased to see again Chagall’s paintings both in my country and of my country!
Anyway, if you are interested in his work at all, this exhibition is a must-see.
