Marc Chagall

CHAGALL (1887 - 1985)

Chagall remains a mystery and a phenomenon. The artist was able to create a collection of unusual, out-of-the-ordinary paintings so very far from the trends of the time.

Chagall takes us far beyond usual boundaries to magical lands flowing in a perpetual daydream. Chagall did not wait for psychoanalysis to become trendy; he was already studying the subconscious. His works are timeless, even if art critics would criticize a Fauvist Chagall or a Cubist Chagall or his attempts at expressionism and surrealism. And sometimes with good reason, but then again, Chagall remains…Chagall!

Dedicating his life to a quest for all things spiritual, even mystical, Chagall sometimes tipped over into the fantastic.

“Come back, you are famous and Vollard (famous art dealer of the time) is waiting for you” wrote the poet Cendrars from Berlin…in 1922! Rare are the works of art that enjoyed such seemingly instant fame throughout the art world. Chagall died leaving behind him a considerable collection peppered with donkeys, nanny-goats and characters soaring high above towns…scenery and landscapes anchored so firmly in our collective unconscious, rendering every Chagall piece a work of art that stands out above the rest.

Numerous retrospectives have paid tribute to this master painter of the 20th century, adored by the masses as well as the critics. Sales of his pieces remain the stuff records are made of in auction houses around the world today.
