The Mediterranean Chagall26 June - 18 September 1994

In the New Wing, the Museum of Modern Art presented its first thematic exhibition, entitled The Mediterranean Chagall: a 'triptych' (the Holy Land - Greece - the Cote d'Azur) which, through the works of the artist (oil paintings, water-colours, gouaches, pastels, drawings, prints as well as some maquettes of well-known stained glass pieces and mosaics) had as its objective an examination of his relationship with the Mediterranean. 

The works were kindly sent from the M.N.A.M. - Centre George Pompidou, the collection of the artist's daughter, Ida Chagall, as well as other private collections. The exhibition was accompanied by a fully illustrated bilingual catalogue (Greek, French), with essays and excerpts from the artist's writings and lectures, along with some of his poems.
