Chagall politique. Le Cri de liberté

In the course of a life marked by two wars and one exile, Chagall created a body of work that is deeply rooted in the history of the 20th century. A figure of displacement and migration, the artist criss-crossed the world, from his childhood in Russia to France. His art, imbued with a profound humanism, nourished by his Jewish roots and his life's journey, is the messenger of an unwavering commitment to man and his rights, to equality and tolerance between beings. The exhibition brings together never-before-seen archives and numerous masterpieces.
