The Art of Marc Chagall: War and Peace through Yiddish Eyes
April 29 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Journalist and author Linda Burghardt will present a slide show and discussion about the Russian-French artist Marc Chagall. Referred to as “the quintessential Jewish artist of the twentieth century” and “the last survivor of the first generation of European modernists,” Chagall used the medium of stained glass and large scale paintings to blend Eastern European Jewish folk culture and modern art. Dr. Burghardt will discuss Chagall’s life and artistic accomplishments, connecting his work to the world in which he lived, including Tsarist Russia, Nazi controlled Europe, and post-war America.
