Life and Love: Prints, Drawings and Paintings
The works of outstanding 20th century artist Marc Chagall were exhibited in Turkey for the very first time at the Pera Museum. The 160 works by Chagall were comprised of prints, drawings and paintings selected from the rich collection of The Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
The exhibition catalogue examines a unique selection that revealed Chagall's multi-faceted personality and vivid world of imagination. Accompanying the drawings, which reflect Chagall’s life and his love for his first wife Bella, the catalogue also presents his illustrations for the Holy Book and for literary works such as The Fables of La Fontaine, and Gogol's Dead Souls. Representing his signature style, themes such as Russian folklore, Jewish traditions and lovers stand out in Chagall's works.
