Chagall Between war and peace an exhibition at the Luxembourg Museum (few steps from the hotel)
Thursday, February 14
In 1910, Marc Chagall moved to Paris and attended the Académie de la Grande Chaumiere, opposite the hotel, the most famous academy for painting in the French capital.
Chagall was nearly a hundred when he died in 1985. He had crossed most of the 20th century, living through one revolution, two wars and a period of exile, and rubbing shoulders with some of its most avant-garde artists. His personal experience of History, the memory of people he knew, his travels and his homeland shine through in his work.This dialectic of war and peace in the broadest sense highlights the essential aspects of Chagall’s work. By exploring the decisive episodes in his life, it helps us understand the link between his vision of the human condition and his sincere, sensitive pictorial technique, which, thirty years after his death, is still strikingly innovative.From 21st february to 21st july 2013Every day from 10am to 19:30pmLate night until 10pm on Mondays and FridaysExceptional closing on may 1st11 euros, concession 7,50 euros - free for visitors under 16 years1 € , concession 7,50 €
