Landerneau (Finistère): Chagall exhibit “From poetry to painting”

until November 1, 2016

Rédigé par Saliha Hadj-Djilani translated by Joséphine Foucher le Lundi 29 Août 2016

Inaugurated on June 26, at the Hélène & Edouard Leclerc Culture Fund in Landerneau, the exhibition Chagall “From poetry to painting” displays the relationship between the artist and literature, offering a new perspective on the work of this world famous painter. The exhibit will take place until November 1st, 2016.

The exhibition featured at the Hélène & Edouard Leclerc Culture Fund displays major pieces of Chagall's work, collected from international museums and private collections.

These pieces illustrate the theme of the Bible, the elements that marked Chagall’s life (Russian revolution, WWII, exile…) and the major texts that inspired him such as his paintings on the La Fontaine fables.

Out of the 300 pieces gathered in Landerneau, many also reflect his friendship with famous writers and poets like Blaise Cendrars, Guillaume Apollinaire, André Malraux, Louis Aragon...

“Through this exhibit, we wanted to offer a new perspective on the artwork of Marc Chagall, a new look at poetry and painting. The pieces come from Paris, Nice, Roubaix… Yet, Chagall had never been exhibited to the general public in Western France. This is the encounter that we are organizing from June 26 until November 1st in Landerneau, thanks to Jean-Louis Prat, curator of the exhibit,” declared Michel-Edouard Leclerc.
