Screening of Chagall, peintre de la musique 

FILM

CHAGALL, PEINTRE DE LA MUSIQUE 

Mathilde Deschamps Lotthé / France / 2015 / 53 min / french

When we think of the Russian-French artist Marc Chagall (1887-1985), what comes to mind are pairs of lovers in the sky, colourful bouquets and dreamlike representations of transformed reality. What is less known is that Chagall had a a close relationship with music, a passion that came from a childhood steeped in Klezmer music and liturgical psalms. This film shows how this passion was expressed in his work, from his recurring representations of musical instruments to his sets and costumes for opera and ballet.
