Hot Art: A Full Palette of Chagall (and More!) at the AGO

Marc Chagall's Blue Circus (©ADAGP/Centre Pompidou)

OCTOBER 18 TO JANUARY 15 Russia isn’t exactly the most colourful place on earth, but you wouldn’t know it by viewing the works of Marc Chagall. One of the 20th century’s most successful artists, he was at the vanguard of early modernism, incorporating elements of cubism, fauvism and surrealism into vivid dreamscapes such as Blue Circus. The Art Gallery of Ontario presents some of the Belorussian-Frenchman’s best-known images in Chagall and the Russian Avant-Garde, an exhibition created by Paris’s Centre Pompidou. In addition to more than 30 of Chagall’s finest works, the display also offers context through a major assemblage of paintings, drawings, sculpture and more by his contemporaries, including Wassily Kandinsky, Sonia Delaunay and Kasimir Malevich.
