Paris Through the Window

 
Paris meets the Philadelphia Museum of Art this Spring in an exhibit that takes in the spirit of migration during the first half of the 20th century. Artists settled the cafes and galleries of Montparnasse. This exhibition will focus on the paintings of Chigall from 1910-1920, including many of his most renowned pieces.The evocative power of Paris as a symbol of culture, of freedom, and of modernity was enormous for artists the world over and accounts for the extraordinary migration there during the first half of the 20th century. Most artists settled in a vibrant area of Paris known as Montparnasse, which was sprinkled with artists residences, cafes, and art galleries; it was here that Marc Chagall, Jacques Lipchitz, Amedeo Modigliani, Chana Orloff, Jules Pascin, Chaim Soutine, and Ossip Zadkine established studios and discovered each others work. This exhibition will include around 35 paintings and sculptures by these emigr artists, all of which were created in a unique atmosphere of mutual encouragement and support in Montparnasse before the Second World War. The exhibition will focus in particular on the paintings that Chagall made between 1910 and 1920, including the artists early masterpiece Half Past Three (The Poet), of 1911, which has long been considered one of the great treasures of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the first time his three paintings on the theme of the poet have been shown together. Curator: Michael Taylor, The Muriel and Philip Berman Curator of Modern Art.
