At a Glance

Who are some of the most important artists of Parisian modernism? And what are the threads that run through the work of those artists? Let’s explore these questions, and unpack why the School of Paris is so universally beloved through four stand-alone lectures — each focused on one of the kingpins of modernist art. Experience Cezanne, Matisse, Modigliani and Chagall while learning what makes the most innovative late 19th and early 20th century French art so extraordinary. This lecture will focus on Marc Chagall whose work, throughout his long career, retained a youthful exuberance, one of the many reasons his imagery is so beloved. His scenes reflect the important historical and artistic moments he experienced, including both World Wars and Paris at the heyday of Cubism. He merged subjects and themes recollected from a childhood in modern-day Belarus with the complexities inspired by the avant-garde communities around him, ultimately visualizing a world filled with love, wonder and imagination.
