Marc Chagall: works on paper. 01.02.-08.04.1985

Kestner Gesellschaft is an institution for those who are enthusiastic for modern art. In modern history, it plays a significant role in the history of modernism. Many of their exhibitions later are later on tour in a wide variety of European Capitals of Culture.

Founded in 1916 to promote modern art, it was always their goal "not simply to act as a pleasant pastime, but as a stimulus, if necessary also as pathogens." Yet 1936 presented a retrospective of that time long ago condemned Franz Marc. On a work-stoppage of twelve years was followed by a lively exhibition activity with many of the major names as Picasso and Klimt to Grosz and Warhol. In 1982 the Kestner company was awarded for their "persistent, nationally and internationally oriented mediation of current artistic work" the Theo Wormland prize. Due to our good contacts to Kestner company we can offer original exhibition posters, now almost historical collectibles, at a special price: These rare pieces were framed in a 2.5 cm wide massive wooden strip and were glazed dustproof.

The last exhibition during the lifetime of the most popular great master of the 20th century! The 97-year-old Chagall died during the exhibition of his watercolours, gouaches and drawings on 28/03/1985. Size: 51.5 x 83.5 cm framed.

Marc ChagallMarc 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.
