WHAT: “Chagall and the Circle of Jewish Painters of the 20th Century”
WHEN: December 4 – January 5, 2013
WHERE: Wally Findlay Galleries International, Inc., 165 Worth Avenue, Palm Beach, FL
WHY THIS SHOW MATTERS: The celebrated modernist master has long been regarded as one of the most respected European artists of his time. Now, thanks to a new exhibition at Wally Findlay Galleries’s Palm Beach location, his artwork and legacy are being appreciated for a different reason. A selection of Marc Chagall’s paintings, ranging from 1942 to 1980, can be seen next to a group of fellow expat Jewish contemporaries he mentored and worked alongside in what has became known as the Jewish School of Paris — an important enclave that developed in the city during the first part of the 20th century of artists with Jewish heritage who came to Paris when it was the epicenter of the art world.
