Featuring more than 80 paintings and drawings from the early career of Marc Chagall (1887 - 1985), this exhibition delves into an essential period in the work of this unique artist, when his background in Russian folk art intermingled with the most progressive experiments of the Parisian avant-garde, giving birth to the style that would come to characterize his whole production.
The show reveals the profound motivations that guided Chagall's art, the movements and artists that influenced him, and the crucial themes he developed throughout his career. It offers an immersion into his seemingly simple universe, uncovering a complex reality where opposing worlds intertwine.
This exhibition has been organized by Kunstmuseum Basel in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, and the presentation in Bilbao has been made possible thanks to the generous sponsorship of Fundación BBVA.
