Structure

Centre Pompidou-Metz

Marc Chagall created some exceptional stained-glass windows for the cathedrals in Metz and Reims, Cordeliers chapel in Sarrebourg, the Hadassah synagogue in Jerusalem, and the UN headquarters in New York, as well as numerous other buildings, both religious and secular in France and abroad, thus contributing to the renewal of art. The exhibition, which compares the preparatory drawings to the finished stained-glass windows, and presents a collection made up of paintings, sculptures, graphic works and archives, details the history of these commissions, the collaboration with the master glassmakers and Chagall's free use of signs and symbols, in keeping with his humanist ideal of freedom and peace.
Exhibition organised in partnership with the Marc Chagall National Museum (Musée National Marc Chagall) in Nice.
