/ The Blue Circus by Marc Chagall 1950 Marc Chagall born 1887 [- 1985] Russian-born painter, lithographer, etcher and designer. Born in Vitebsk of a deeply religious Jewish family. First artistic instruction under Penn, a local painter, then spent 1907-10 in St Petersburg, where he entered the Imperial School for the Protection of the Fine Arts, and later studied under Bakst. Lived 1910-14 in Paris, where he met Apollinaire, Delaunay, Leger, Modigliani and Lhote. Somewhat influenced by Cubism, but differed from it in his love of fantasy. First one-man exhibition at the Galerie Der Sturm, Berlin, 1914. Returned to Russia the same year and had to remain there because of the war. After the Revolution, appointed Fine Arts Commissar for the province of Vitebsk and directed an art academy; also executed murals for Granovsky's Jewish Theatre in Moscow. Spent 1922-3 in Berlin, then 1923-40 in Paris, except for visits to Egypt, Palestine, Holland, Spain, Portugal and Italy; in addition to paintings, made illustrations for Gogol's Dead Souls, La Fontaine's Fables and the Bible. In the USA as a refugee 1941-7, then returned to France, settling in 1950 at Vence. His later works include a new ceiling painting for the Paris Opéra and, from 1957 a number of commissions for stained glass. Lives in Saint-Paul-de-Vence. #marcchagall #marcchagallart #thebluecircus #artpainter #modernart #masterpeace #oldart #oldartist #paintingart #frenchartist #frenchpainter #painter #paintings #sotheby #famousartist #famousart #masterartist #cubist #nationalgallery #impressiveart #sothebys #sothebys #nationalgalleryofart #frenchart #parisart #masterpainter #french #greatart #greatartist #bestartist #bestart #french #sotheby

• Marc Chagall demonstrates the best arm positions for spooning in Over the Town. Chagall’s muse was his first wife, Bella Rosenfeld, who was the sophisticated daughter of a wealthy jeweler. The little brat tested her parents’ patience when she decided to marry the hopeful artist. Thankfully, Chagall went from being a meager apprentice to being a hot-shot modern artist who seemed to live off of women’s audible gasps at the sight of his scandalous images. In many of Chagall’s paintings, Bella can be seen floating through the air. Over the Town shows the couple flying over their hometown of Vitebsk in love and elation. Perhaps the artist had a different kind of “love” in mind as he was prone to depict figures with their bodies entangled in a jumbled mess. In Over the Town, the couple can be seen awkwardly spooning. They seem to be caught up in the all-too-common dilemma of finding the most comfortable place to put their arms while in this situation. The answer: nowhere, it’s impossible. The questionable positions of his subjects got Chagall into some trouble in Paris, when he first started showing his pieces. Despite his subjects being fully clothed, the artists’ mishmash of legs and arms pointing in every imaginable direction was enough for viewers to deem his pieces as pornographic. Understandably, Bella is exposing a little bit too much wrist in this one. #marcchagall #marcchagallart #overthetown #artpainter #modernart #masterpeace #oldart #oldartist #paintingart #frenchartist #frenchpainter #painter #paintings #sotheby #famousartist #famousart #masterartist #cubist #nationalgallery #impressiveart #sothebys #sothebys #nationalgalleryofart #frenchart #parisart #masterpainter #french #greatart #greatartist #bestartist #bestart #french #sotheby

She was a member of the American abstract expressionist movement, even though much of her career took place in France. Along with Lee Krasner, Grace Hartigan, Helen Frankenthaler, Shirley Jaffe and Sonia Gechtoff, she was one of her era's few female painters to gain critical and public acclaim. Her paintings and editioned prints can be seen in major museums and collections across the United States and Europe. • • •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #cytwombly #rothko #dekooning #oiloncanvas #womenartists #abstractart #abstractpainting #roylichtenstein #femaleartist #abstractexpressionism #screenprint #franzkline #museumofmodernart #modernart #samfrancis #abstractexpressionist #contemporarypainting #leekrasner #gravesinternationalart #1stdibs #christies #sothebys #helenfrankenthaler #artbasel #andywarhol #postwar #robertmotherwell #jacksonpollock #lithography
