CHAGALL IN THE RMFAB


The collection - FR  The collection - NL



The collection of the RMFAB includes six works by Marc Chagall. They consist of gouaches, presented chronologically below. Four of them were added to the collections of the Museums in 1990 thanks to the legacy of Madame Alla Goldschmidt-Safieva. The earliest one Moi et le village was produced in 1912 during Chagall's first stay in Paris. The five others were also created in the French capital and date from the interwar period, after his return from Russia.
