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.

Beyond the century and crossing the whole spring and summer, Chagall finally came to Beijing. He will use the palette of life to add the most beautiful color to Beijing’s autumn.

From October 17th, 2021 to January 17, 2022, Beijing Yintai Center, Meet You Museum will bring modernist master Marc Chagall’s Beijing first exhibition “Meet Chagall: Love and Color”. Kong Bochuan from Meet You Museum and Maria Dolores (Mme Miria. Dolores) as the curators, and the well-known architectural and art innovation laboratory “Joint Society” as the exhibition design. Gathering first-class artistic forces, Meet You Museum Museum is about to bring the audience a healing journey of love, life and art.

Chagall Brightens the World with Color

Marc Chagall was born in 1887 to a poor Jewish family in what is now Belarus. He experienced both world wars, and spent his life drifting around the world, from his hometown of Vitebsk to Saint Petersburg, New York, and Paris. When creating art, he relied on his inner poetic force, rather than the logic or rules of painting; he perfectly blended images from his own experience with formal symbols and aesthetic elements. In his paintings, love is presented with vibrant colors and child-like figures, and lovers float down the river of love like balloons floating up into the sky at a party.

Clement Greenberg, one of the twentieth century’s greatest art critics, wrote that Chagall painted “… many beautiful paintings in royal blue, red, green, pink, and white—the still lifes

that a sweeter Matisse could have painted and the bridal couples hovering in luscious bouquets…”Pablo Picasso, a good friend of Chagall, once said, “When Matisse dies, Chagall will be the only painter left who understands what color is.”

Half a Century of Classic Works by the Last Modernist Master

This show is the largest traveling exhibition of Chagall’s work in China to date. This first exhibition of Chagall’s work in Beijing on the themes of love and hope across seven sections: “Hometowns, Second Homes, and Distant Lands” , “Magician of Color” , “Love” , “Surrounded by Flowers” , “Suffering, Lamentation, and Faith” , “Fables, Myths, and Classics” and “Paris: A City of Tumult, Hope, and Rebirth” . The show will feature 155 works from Chagall’s mature period to his later years, spanning six decades and multiple mediums, including oil, watercolor, gouache, tempera, and etching. These works from 1925 to 1981 demonstrate his extraordinary skill in different mediums; the exhibition will showcase oil paintings such as Lovers with the Blue Donkey, The Bride and Groom and the Angel, The Purple Rooster, Lovers with a Bouquet of Flowers, and Painter and Acrobat, and the art historically acclaimed sets of prints, rarely exhibited in full, for La Fontaine’s Fables and the Bible.
