The great Game of colour

France 1948-1985

Return to France.

Chagall left the United States for good after the Second World War. He went to rebuild his life in France, settling in Vence in the south of the country. He also painted Paris, the beauty of the city he so loved and its monuments: the Louvre, the Bastille, the Notre Dame and the Opera…

Pottery and Sculpture.

The possibility of inventing new forms and controlling the action of colour on clay enabled Chagall to establish close ties with an art rooted in popular tradition. In the fifties he began to explore ceramics, which led him shortly afterwards to create works in a different universe of everlasting materials, the world of sculpture.
