Marc Chagall exhibition is still running at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza (Madrid, Spain) until next 20 May. More than 150 paintings coming from public and private collections can be seen at the two locations of the exhibition, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Caja Madrid Foundation.
The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA, New York, USA), the Tate Modem (London, UK), The Kunstmuseum (Bern, Switzerland), The Kunsthaus Zürich (Belgium), the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam, Holland) and the Centre Pompidou (Paris, France) are some of the institution lending artworks for this major exhibition.
Marc Chagall (Vitebsk, Belarus, 1887-Saint Paul de Vence, France, 1985), widely considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century, created a whole world of fantasy and lyric within his paintings, full of colour and far from being easily classified.
People and objects floating in a particular universe and the almost childish, fancy way of his painting show the unique style of this artist who combined elements of different art movements (Expressionism, Symbolism and more) and used various techniques along his successful career.
