One-hundred-fifty works by the great Russian-born painter Marc Chagall will be soon on display in Rome. Thanks to the co-operation with the Israel Museum of Jerusalem, this important exhibition will bring to the Eternal City some of the masterpieces by the Jewish artist who died in France in 1985. “Marc Chagall. Love ad life”: as the title reveals the exhibition is based on the life and love experience of the painter as it shows through his works. His muse was Bella Rosenfeld, not only a life partener to him, but a main source of artistic inspiration, together with the motifs coming from his own cultural and religious background. Beyond Bella, indeed, Chagall’s paintings portrays a few characters which can be traced back to the Jewish religion: the goat, an allegory of hope and confidence; the hut, reminiscent of the celebration of the feast after the Exodus; the donkey, tied to the different moments of the Bible; the fiddler figure who uses to attend the major Jewish religious holidays.
The exhibit will be on from March 16 to July 26, daily (Monday to Friday 10am – 8 pm; Saturday and Sunday 10am – 9 pm),at Chiostro del Bramante, few steps away from Piazza Navona Tickets: maximum € 13.
