《命運的色彩─夏加爾南法時期作品展》 | MARC CHAGALL, LIGHT AND COLOUR IN SOUTHERN FRANCE

Le French May 法國五月 呈獻本年度重點展覽《命運的色彩─夏加爾南法時期作品展》,是次展覽為澳門首次舉辦的夏加爾大型作品展,將展出一系列作品,包括油畫、水粉畫、石版畫、舞台服飾及掛毯等。

馬克‧夏加爾(1887-1985),20世紀最重要的藝術家之一,生於白俄羅斯,1950年代移居法國南部。夏加爾受到不同文化滋養,也經歷了戰爭與逃亡的洗煉,形成獨特的藝術風格。他的藝術與其時代一致,體現了一種普世價值─和平。藝術家從20世紀各種藝術運動中汲取靈感,卻又不參與任何一個運動,作品具有鮮明的個人特徵,繽紛的色彩及溫暖的光線讓觀眾仿如遊歷於遙遠的夢幻國度。

《命運的色彩─夏加爾南法時期作品展》探索藝術家1950年代至70年代作品的光線與色彩,這段時期的創作受到耀眼的地中海與蔚藍海岸的明亮風光的啟發。夏加爾於1920年代後期首次發現這地區,法國南部的強烈的光線對他產生深遠的影響,使他開始了全新的藝術旅程。1952年及1954年,夏加爾遊歷希臘,是次旅程亦成為他靈感的泉源。色彩,在美學及象徵意義上,對夏加爾來說是不可或缺的,亦構成其作品的內在結構及精神面貌。

Organised by the Macao Museum of Art, this first exhibition in Macao dedicated to Marc Chagall will feature a selection of works (paintings, gouaches, lithographs, costumes and tapestries) which highlight the pre-eminence of light and colour in his creations.

One of the major artists of the 20th century, Marc Chagall (1887–1985), born in White Russia (present-day Belaru), settled in the South of France in the 1950s. His world is unique, nurtured by the many cultural influences encountered during his life and marked by war and exile. In tune with his time, his art embodies a universal message of peace. Borrowing from many 20th century art movements but never aligning with one, his oeuvre is distinct and instantly recognisable, with vivid colours and warm light inviting you on a journey to far and imaginary horizons.

Marc Chagall, Light and Colour in Southern France explores the omnipresence of light and colour in his work from the 1950s to the 1970s, inspired by the dazzling Mediterranean Sea and bright landscapes of the French Riviera. Marc Chagall had first discovered this region at the end of the 1920s. The intensity of the southern light had a profound effect on him, stimulating an artistic renaissance. Greece, where he travelled in 1952 and 1954, also became a source of inspiration. Colour, in an aesthetic and a symbolic sense, is essential to Chagall, an architecture within the composition and a vector of spirituality. A thematic renaissance was also to take shape, where mythical beings, mermaids, fish and radiant suns adorn his creations, providing a Mediterranean aura to the paintings.
