CAUMONT CENTRE D'ART - CHAGALL exhibition - from black & white to colour

  • Exposition Chagall

From november 1st to March 24th 2019 (from 10 am to 6pm, last entrance 30mn before closing)
The exhibition, which is devoted to the last part of the artist’s career, highlights his change of style and reveals each stage in the artist’s creative process, from 1948 until his death in 1985.

More than 100 works (paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings, washes, gouaches, and collages) reflect Chagall’s artistic exploration of black and white and his subsequent mastery of particularly luminous, intense, and profound tints.
In a wide range of works—China ink washes, sculptures in white marble, plaster, and bronze, and ceramics—Chagall’s visual world evolved towards a highly colourful palette. All the materials used by the artist will enable the visitor to rediscover the world of the painter, draughtsman, sculptor, ceramist, and engraver through his exploration of colour, and, more specifically, black and white.
