Don’t Miss the Marc Chagall Exhibition at Hôtel de Caumont

By Aixcentric:

What a terrific show at the Caumont Centre d’Art in Aix. It features the work of Marc Chagall, from his black and white gravures from the 1920s and 30s, via his white marble sculptures, to his joyously colourful gouaches and oil paintings.

His small sculptures, featuring entwined couples or biblical scenes even a self-portrait, are a revelation.

Once he returned to France, after his exile in the US during WW2, he became fascinated with pottery, and like Picasso, worked at Vallauris designing and decorating plates and fantastical vases….examples of which are in the show. Continue reading here for the contributor blog post by Aixcentric and Lynne’s comments on this unique expo.

The show “Marc Chagall, From Black and White to Color” runs until March 24, 2019 – don’t miss it!

More Marc Chagall

In Nice: At the foot of Cimiez Hill is the Musée National Marc Chagall, opening its doors to honor the talents and philanthropic generosity of this great Franco-Russian artist.  It is an extraordinary art museum that is the benefactor of the largest public collection of Chagall’s works, including seventeen masterpieces entitled, The Biblical Message.  In 1966, Marc Chagall originally donated the Biblical Message series to the French State, first being exhibited at the Louvre in Paris, and eventually making its permanent home in the upper-class neighborhood on Cimiez Hill in Nice.

Saint-Paul de Vence:  The hamlet is known as the one-time home of painter Marc Chagall, and the place that also captivated the attention of Alexander Calder, Joan Miró and other artists. Some of their works are on exhibit at the Maeght Foundation just outside the town. More on the town of Saint-Paul de Vence and the game of pétanque.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
