Special Chagall Exhibit Inaugurated

Download PDF for this date

President Valery Giscard d’Estaing inaugurated today a special Chagall exhibition at the Louver national art museum. This is the second time in French art history that a living painter has his works on display at the Louver for a “one-man show.”

Chagall’s recent works now on display continue to describe Jewish life and Jewish themes. The Russian-born painter, whose works decorate Israel’s Knesset building, is due to leave for Israel next month for a week of celebrations marking his 90th birthday and 75 years of work as the world’s most outstanding living Jewish painter.
