Paris through the Window: Marc Chagall and His Circle
Through July 10, 2011
Philadelphia Museum of Art
26th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway
It’s a special treat to see all the Jewish content and themes packed into the Philadelphia Museum’s exhibit, but it’s also worth paying attention to the work Taylor and his colleagues have done on Chagall’s circle of friends and fellow artists, many of whom were fellow Jews – most prominently Leon Bakst and Amadeo Modigliani – and immigrants, who were attracted to the religious tolerance of Paris.
