Chagall Painting Shown in Moscow Gallery for First Time Since Stalin

A drawing by Marc Chagall is being exhibited in the Soviet Union for the first time since the artist left Russia in 1922, according to information reaching here from Moscow. The small red watercolor sketch titled “Peace to the Huts, War to the Mansions,” dated 1918-1919, has been on display in Moscow’s Tretyakov Gallery for about a week as part of a special showing of revolutionary and civil war posters in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Soviet Revolution. Chagall’s paintings have been barred from Russian galleries since the Stalin period.
