Saturdays 14, 21 and 28 April 2012 at 9pm and 10.15pm, visitors to Chagall exhibition found an intriguing character waiting for them as they left the exhibition. This was Chagall’s beloved Uncle Neuch, a cattle merchant whose artistic temperament on occasions led him to play the violin on the roof, according to Chagall’s own account. The actor Fernando González Herrero brought Uncle Neuch to life, offering visitors a selection of stories from the Russian and Jewish folk culture that so inspired the work of Chagall.
