Moscow exhibition explores Chagall’s Russian Jewish roots

Many of Marc Chagall's paintings include repeated symbolism of Menorahs and the Torah
A new exhibition on the Jewish painter Marc Chagall has opened in Moscow to celebrate the 125th anniversary of his birth and aims to explore the impact his Russian and cultural background had on his work.

Marc Chagall:The Origins of the Master’s Creative Language at the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow explores some of the celebrated artist’s lesser known works, in the form of drawings, watercolours, sculptures and paintings to show how the untaught master drew his inspiration from his natural habitat and his exposure to Jewish and Russian culture. -- AFP and EJP [European Jewish Press]
