Exhibition Name:

Marc Chagall: Engraved Magic

Description: Chagall's etchings reveal a balance of different tonal values, extraordinary skill in mixing whites and blacks, and a distinctive and delicate touch. Among the amazing etchings in the exhibition is the rare series of 96 illustrations of Nikolay Gogol's poem "Dead Souls" ("Les Ames mortes"), created in the 1920s but published only in 1948. The etchings give new life to the work, describing exactly and vividly the writer's lucid, yet compassionate views on human nature.

With more than 400 works to draw from, this exhibition can include more than 100 plates illustrating both The Fables of La Fontaine (1927 - 1930) and The Bible (1956). For these series, Chagall was inspired by a pilgrimage to Palestine, which became a spiritual journey as well as an unforgettable visual experience, as seen in his desert landscapes bathed in blinding light.
