This large-scale multidisciplinary exhibition explores, for the first time, the importance of music for Marc Chagall (1887-1985). The exhibition presents 400 works – paintings, sculptures, maquettes, gouaches, stained glass windows, photographs, films, costumes and puppets – many of which are little known by the public. Music was a constant source of inspiration for the artist. A favourite subject for his creations, it served as an internal rhythm and driving force for his compositions, and a key to the intensity and range of colour in his work. Find out more about the ‘Chagall: Colour and Music’ exhibition from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ website.
