Madrid is currently home to a large and important exhibition featuring the works of Marc Chagall.
Due to the volume of work produced by the Russian born artist the exhibition is being split between two venues. Venue number 1, the Thyssen-Bomemisza Museum (Paseo del Prado, 8 ) contains the work of the artist produced before and up to the outbreak of the Second World War. This part of the exhibition is called “The Path of Poetry”. The Caja Madrid Foundation (Plaza San Martín, 1) is the home to the second part of the exhibition which is entitled “A Great Interplay of Colours.” This part of the exhibition features work from later on his life in particular after he had moved to Provence. There is a collection of sculptures and ceramic pieces showcased here too.
This is the first time that such as exhibition of Chagall’s work has appeared in Spain so it is very much a unique opportunity for those living in Madrid or visiting the Spanish capital. With so much to see and do in Madrid it can be difficult finding time to fit everything in but taking time to enjoy this exhibition will definitely be well worth the effort. Make sure you don’t miss out on enjoying a plate of tapas or two after the exhibition or of course doing a spot of people watching from one of the many bustling cafes that can be found throughout the city.
