With the boundless imagination that characterizes his works, Marc Chagall (1887-1985) is considered one of the most idiosyncratic artists of modernism. For the first time in 15 years, the SCHIRN Kunsthalle is once again dedicating a large-scale exhibition in Germany to the painter. "Chagall. World in Turmoil" will illuminate a hitherto little-known side of his oeuvre from November 4, 2022 to February 19, 2023: Chagall's works of the 1930s and 1940s, in which his colorful palette increasingly darkens. The exhibition is structured as a thematically organized tour with seven sections.
For the presentation, the Schirn was able to attract important loans from numerous German and international museums, public as well as private collections and bring them together in Frankfurt.
The exhibition at the Schirn focuses on works by Marc Chagall created in the 1930s and 1940s.
The exhibition also features an extensive catalog, a Digitorial® that highlights the political events that shaped Chagall's work at the stations of Vitebsk, Paris, Jerusalem, and New York, and an accompanying booklet that is also very suitable for school classes.
