Artist: Marc Chagall (After)
This beautiful exhibition poster promotes a collection of Marc Chagall's work spanning from 1957 to 1969 at what is now the Comedie de Reims, in France. La Maison de la Culture is the original institution that was an open space adaptable to the needs of any artistic exposition, whether it be theatre, dance, musique or the fine arts. It is said that the sheer size of the grand hall allowed for the variety of expositions, allowing for sculptures and paintings of any size to be displayed. This poster is from a print run of 1000.
Marc Chagall (1887 – 1985), was a Russian-French artist associated with one of the most successful artistic careers of the 20th century. He was an early modernist and created works in virtually every artistic medium, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints. Considered to be "the last survivor of the first generation of European modernists" he created his own mixture and style of modern art based on his idea of Eastern European Jewish folk culture. and "synthesized the art forms of Cubism, Symbolism and Fauvism and the influence of Fauvism gave rise to Surrealism."
