Party #5: Chagall in Israel: Exploring Chagall’s Artistic & Spiritual Legacy
Sunday, February 24, 2013
3:00 p.m. at The Campbell House
Hosted by Joan Fish and Katherine MacRae
Marc Chagall’s relationship to Israel is thought by his biographers to be linked to a commission he received to do a series of illustrations for the Bible. Actually, his first trip to Palestine before the State of Israel was created, heightened Chagall’s enduring bond with his Hasidic Jewish heritage. He returned to Israel seven times, maintaining close ties with artists and art historians, politicians, writers and businessmen and extending the depth of his involvement with each visit.
This lecture by Vivian Jacobson examines these artistic pilgrimages to Israel, accompanied by an image presentation, serves as an introduction to the vast store of his paintings and other artwork that he gave to the Jerusalem and Tel Aviv museums, as well as a sampling of sketches, drawings and other works found in both private and public collections.
Vivian Jacobson has lectured on Chagall all over the world since 1978. She has served as president of the American Friends of the Chagall Biblical Message Museum in Nice, France and chair of the Friends of Chagall Tapestry, which was presented to the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. She worked with Chagall on many projects during the last 11 years of his life, which she wrote about in her book, Sharing Chagall: A Memoir. Learn more at www.VivianJacobson.com.
Refreshments will be served.
