Exhibition Poster "Chagall" (1985) of the Kestner Society Hannover, Framed

Those who love modern art know the Kestner Community in Hannover as an art institution. In the history of modern, it plays an important role. A lot of its exhibitions travel to the most different European centers of culture.

Founded in 1916 to meet the needs of the modern art, it's aim is "Not to make impact as a place to spend time with pleasure, but also as a motivator or even as a pathogen." In 1936 they presented an overview of works by Franz Mark, who'd been outlawed long before. A compulsory break of twelve years was followed by a lively exhibition activity with many great names from Picasso and Klimt to Grosz and Warhol. In 1982, the Kestner Community received the Theo Wormland Prize for its "persistent, nationally and internationally oriented mediation of contemporary art creation."

The last exhibition in the lifetime of one of the most popular artists of the 20th century! The 97-year old Chagall died during the exhibition of his watercolors, gouaches, and drawings on 28/03/1985.

A poster to the exhibition "Works on paper 01.02.-08.04.1985". Framed in the black solid wood strip, glazed. Format 89 x 64.5 cm (H/W).

Marc Chagall was born in Vitebsk, Belorussia in 1887. He began his work in the Pen workshops in Vitebsk in 1906 and Bakst in St. Petersburg in 1907. He travelled to Paris in 1911 where his encounters with the Avant-Gardists were decisive. In 1914, the first exhibition of monographs was organized in Berlin before his return to Vitebsk. Chagall became Public Superintendent of Fine Arts and founded an art school. The painter left Russia definitively in 1923 and moved to Paris where he developed a personal style that demonstrated the marriage of iconography and Jewish, Russian and French culture. Upon his return in 1948 from self-imposed exile in the United States during World War II, Chagall became one of the greatest artists of the 20th Century - a marvellous colorist and story teller - until his death in 1985 at Saint-Paul, France.
