The Fractured World of Marc Chagall

Coinciding with Jeanie and Jay Schottenstein’s loan of their Marc Chagall paintings to the Columbus Museum of Art, Susan Tarmarkin Goodman will discuss Chagall’s work before, during, and after WWII.  While much of Chagall’s subject matter is marked by floating brides and grooms, bouquets of colorful flowers, and flying fish, many examples of his paintings deal with the pogroms in Russia, the rise of Nazism in Germany, and the plight of European Jews during the war years.  Dr. Goodman is the Curator Emerita at the Jewish Museum, New York.  This November 30 program is funded in part by the Nanette and Sandy Solomon Arts Fund of the Columbus Jewish Foundation.  Call 614-629-0359 to register.
