From the collection of the Israel Museum in Jerusalem they come for the first time in Catania, at the Castello Ursino - now houses the Museum of the town of Etna - 140 works by Marc Chagall, whose language is so universal as to be loved by everyone and by everyone It is known and recognized and that, of all the artists of the last century, has remained true to himself even through wars, catastrophes, political and technological revolutions. After the success of the exhibition in the Rome office of the Cloister of Bramante, who totaled more than 140,000 visitors, Catania hosts the exhibition and finally returns to breathe the air of culture through drawings, oils, gouaches, lithographs, etchings and watercolors by one of the most beloved artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition tells the poetic artist jew, influenced by the great love for his wife Bella and the pain of his untimely death in 1944, retracing his life and his art that was mingling of the major Western European traditions - from the original Jewish culture to Russia, meeting with the French avant-garde painting. The exhibition Chagall. Love and Life curated by Ronit Sorek is produced by Arthemisia Group, in collaboration with the Israel Museum in the halls of the Castello Ursino from 18 October 2015 to 14 February in 2016. Founded in 1965, the Israel Museum houses collections of art works that cross the Jewish culture from prehistory to contemporary. Within the collection could not miss the work of Chagall, whose works were donated to the museum by the artist himself, his daughter Ida and supporters of the institution which this year celebrates its 50th anniversary and for the occasion grants exceptionally loans for the stage from Catania The eight thematic sections of the exhibition draw a map artistic and spiritual complex and kaleidoscopic which is the foundation of the stateless person's profile. The exhibition Chagall. Love and Life through the works of the Israel Museum presents art and poetry - among the most innovative of the twentieth century - jew's most appreciated and admired the last century. Paraphrasing the title of the book of his wife Bella, lights Chagall - one who has never been a "tortured artist", but that he maintained until the end of his long life, optimism and joy of life - still shine. "Chagall. Love and Life" Works from the collection of the Israel Museum By Ronit Sorek From October 18 to February 14, 2016 Catania, Castello Ursino
