The first monographic of Palazzo Roverella is dedicated to Marc Chagall.
Curated by Claudia Zevi, the exhibition features over one hundred works, including paintings on canvas and paper, engravings and etchings, works that are the children of the nostalgia of her homeland, Russia.
They are masterpieces that come from the greatest European museums such as the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, the Russian State Museum in St. Petersburg, the Pompidou in Paris, the Thyssen Bornemisza in Madrid and the Kunstmuseum in Zurich and from important and historical private collections.
Among these, the "Walk" and the "Jew in Pink", "The Rooster" and the "Black Glove", which highlight the influence that powerful Russian popular culture had on all of Chagall's work. Russia was the place of Chagall's roots, of the memory of a love that he felt disappointed and dreamed could come true.
His Russia, the place of roots, pain and detachment will remain a fixed point and longed for dream in the artist's life.
And the words with which his illustrated autobiography concludes "my Russia will love me too" sound like a prophecy.
