Download PDF for this date

An exhibition entitled “Marc Chagall and the Bible” was opened in Geneva’s Rath Museum in the presence of many of the city’s prominent personalities, including the former Queen of Italy, Marie Jose of Savoya.

Jean Leymerie, a leading Swiss art critic, introduced Chagall’s work as “one of the most significant of our times” and praised Chagall’s genius, his incomparable sense of color and the religious spirit which animates him.

“Marc Chagall has created a unique situation in contemporary painting for he has succeeded with his immense talent to meld Eastern and Western art.” he declared.
