A lovely way to discover the Soviet modern art post World War I. The Centre Pompidou devotes an exhibition to three renown artists from the Russian Avant-Garde from the Vitebsk art school: Kazimir Malevitch, Marc Chagall and El Lissitzky. Three artists who marked modern art their own way through works mostly known across the globe such as Marc Chagall’s Cubist Landscape, for example.
An exhibition mostly focusing on the rise of the movement between 1918 and 1922 through these “masterful works” of the Russian Art and the “spawning of groundbreaking art activities in this city”. It’s also a way to celebrate the century of Marc Chagall’s taking up a post at the art school of the region, since he became curator in 1919.
All in all, over 200 major works of these three artists of the Russian Avant-Garde coming from all over the world are exhibited for the first retrospective of this kind in the light of the Vitebsk Art School.
