In the autumn, Millesgården will present a unique exhibition with

Millesgården 5

works by the artist Marc Chagall and his Russian contemporaries, including famous artists such as Kazimir Malevich, Wassily Kandinsky and the legendary artist couple Mikhail Larionov and Natalia Goncharova. Several of the artists have never been exhibited in Sweden before. The exhibition comprises 19 works by Marc Chagall and 29 works by other artists. All paintings are from the period 1900-1930.
Marc Chagall (Moishe Zakharovich Shagal) was born in 1887 in Liozna, Vitebsk in a Hasidic Jewish home. His family, his sister Mariasinka, the derelict wooden buildings, the fiddlers (sometimes on the roof), the sheep and the goats were his motifs. As a young man he moved to Saint Petersburg to study art. Thanks to the powerful art collectors Shchukin and Morozov, a young art student could encounter Matisse, Picasso and the entire European avant-garde. Modernism liberated Chagall’s technique but his subject matter and narratives remained firmly rooted in his childhood.
In 1910, Chagall moved to Paris but was homesick all the time. In 1914, he returned to Vitebsk, the First World War broke out and he stayed on in the city. He married his beloved Bella and started a family. After the October Revolution, Chagall accepted a post as commissar of arts for the city of Vitebsk and co-founded an art school. During this happy time, Chagall painted some of his most famous works, including the painting The Promenade, which depicts his and Bella’s love. In 1922, Chagall left Russia.
The exhibition comprises 19 works by Marc Chagall as well as works by: Nathan Altman, Léon Bakst, Vladimir Baranov-Rossine, Boris Anisfeld, Mstislav Dobuzhinsky, Alexander Drevin, Natalia Goncharova, Boris Grigoriev, Aleksandr Kuprin, Pavel Kuznetsov, Mikhail Larionov, Aristarkh Lentulov, Vera Pestel, Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin, Olga Rozanova and David Shterenberg.
The exhibition consists of unique loans from the Russian Museum in Saint Petersburg and from private lenders.
