With a path that investigates unprecedented aspects of Chagall's life and poetics - through a selection of unique works rarely presented to the public because they come from important and inaccessible private treasures - the exhibition arrives in Asti after the Korean stage in Seoul where it is obtaining a great success with the public.
With over 150 works including paintings, drawings, watercolors and engravings, Palazzo Mazzetti hosts works from various periods of Chagall's life: from his early works in the 1920s to the traumatic escape from Europe during the Second World War to the last years that passed from artist in the United States. A world steeped in awe and wonder; works in which childhood memories, fairy tales, poetry, religion and war coexist; a universe of brightly colored dreams, of intense shades that give life to landscapes populated by characters, real or imaginary, who crowd into the artist's imagination. Works that reproduce a dreamlike imaginary in which it is difficult to discern the boundary between reality and dream, the same world that Chagall depicts in his engravings books.
