CHAGALL & THE RUSSIAN AVANT-GARDE
I fell in love with Chagall during the many lecture tours I gave at the Chagall Museum on the Cote d'Azur. You will too. Humour, folklore, innocence and colour combined to create one of the most popular artists of the 20th century. Pablo Picasso said of Marc Chagall, “When Matisse dies, Chagall will be the only painter left who understands what colour really is." We will discuss the great Russian artists that matured alongside Chagall: Kandinsky, Goncharova, Rodchenko and Malevich. Culturally more eastern and exotic, the Russians coloured and refined the cosmopolitan approach to art that the artists of the French capital had dominatedduring the early years of the 20th century.
