The Luxembourg Museum presents a new exhibition devoted to the work of Marc Chagall, "War and Peace". From February 21 to July 22, visitors can discover or rediscover the work of one of the masters of twentieth-century painting. Despite the bright colors and shapes sometimes considered naive, themes treated by Jewish artist from Russia are not less serious and profound.
The itinerary begins with the works made before the outbreak of the First World War, and seeks to illustrate the highlight in his life. From his departure from Russia to France, to its installation in the United States due to the rise of Nazism in the 1940s, Marc Chagall recounts these periods in his painting, which is very dark at sometimes.
After the war, Chagall moved to Vence, in the south of France. Over the years, his palette became more colorful and Mediterranean landscapes took possession of his paintings. This serenity is found in Dance.
