For more than eighty years Marc Chagall cultivated an art practice inspired by love, memories, Russian and Jewish traditions, and the historical or artistic events he witnessed and in which he often played a part. This retrospective traces his artistic development chronologically and examines the main themes that pervade the work of this artist, who is essential in envisioning the twentieth century.
