Marc Chagall (1887–1985) is one of the great artists of the last century.  Bringing together more than sixty paintings and a selection of works on paper from across the world\, Chagall: Modern Master t akes a fresh look at this compelling artist who created some of the most po etic and enduring images of the twentieth century.  This exhibition will be the first major presentation of the Russian painter’s work in the UK for m ore than fifteen years. 

\n

 The exhibition will explore Chagall’s dev elopment from the ‘naïve’ folkloristic narratives in his early work\, towar ds his unique style combining fauve\, cubist\, expressionist and suprematis t influences while reflecting his native Jewish Russian culture.

\n

 < em>Chagall: Modern Master will focus on the artist’s time in Paris bef ore the First world War\, his visit to Berlin and his exhibition there in 1 914\, and the years he spent in his native Russia around the time of the Re volution in 1917.  Chagall’s experiences during this period reinforced his highly personal visual language.  The universal\, timeless themes of these early works – including love\, suffering and death – alongside self-portrai ts and depictions of the circus\, music and peasants\, recurred and formed the core of his art for the remainder of his long career.

\n

 Chag all: Modern Master is organised by Kunsthaus Zürich (8 February – 12 M ay 2013) in collaboration with Tate Liverpool.
