Chagall: A Modernist Master of Love, Life, and Art
In our life there is a single color, as on an artist’s palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love.
– Marc Chagall
Pablo Picasso said that love is stimulating, passionate, and fluid.
Vincent van Gogh said that love is rough, painful, and unobtainable.
Marc Chagall said that love is innocent, unique, and able to erase time and heal all suffering.
After a century, Marc Chagall will finally come to Chengdu, and after a harsh winter, he will add vibrant color from the palette of life to springtime in the city.
From April 10 （opening to public from April 11）to July 11, 2021, LUXELAKES · A4 Art Museum will present “Marc Chagall – Love and Hope” a project by ComediArting and the first exhibition for modernist master Marc Chagall in southwestern China.
