Marc Chagall: The Third Dimension

シャガール 三次元の世界

Marc Chagall (1887-1985) made his name with paintings, most typically with depictions of a mysticism-infused idyll, bathed in prismatic hues and filled with levitating animals and people. But the Russian Jew who emigrated first to Paris and then to New York also took up sculpture in his later years, creating several idiosyncratic works which mostly ignored contemporary trends. The first exhibition in Japan to shine a spotlight on this strand of Chagall's oeuvre, 'The Third Dimension' consists of around 170 pieces, including 60 or so sculptures and pottery works which can be compared to the Belarus-born master's more famous two-dimensional creations.
