Naples / Basilica della Pietrasanta – LAPIS MUSEUM
from 15 February to 30 June 2019
For the first time in Naples, the poetic magic of Marc Chagall (1887-1985) told through the exhibition of 150 works.
The exhibition tells the life, the work and the feeling of Chagall for his always beloved wife Bella, through the exhibition of 150 works including paintings, drawings, watercolors and engravings. A core of rare and extraordinary works, coming from private collections and therefore difficult to access for the general public.
Curated by Dolores Duràn Ucar, the exhibition tells the story of the artist’s world of wonder and wonder. In the works coexist memories of childhood, fairy tales, poetry, religion and war, a universe of brightly colored dreams, of intense nuances that give life to landscapes populated by characters, real or imaginary, that crowd into the artist’s imagination.
Works that reproduce an imaginary dream in which it is difficult to discern the boundary between reality and dream.
