Think you’ve seen all of Marc Chagall’s work? Think again.
The Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale is currently exhibiting a glimpse into the Russian-born painter’s early works. Now on display are sixty-five exquisite etchings and aquatints that spotlight the artist’s work in the mid to late 1920s, when he moved to Paris following the Russian Revolution. This carefully selected display focuses on Chagall’s personal and artistic development from his humble beginnings in the embattled Belarus region of Russia to his eventual contribution and impact on the world of art, which still resonates today.
Chagall remains one of the most popular and respected artists of the twentieth century and this exhibition provides an extraordinary look at some of his formative years.
Chagall: The Early Etchings will be on view through April 28. The Forest Lawn Museum, located on the picturesque grounds of Forest Lawn-Glendale, is located at 1712 S. Glendale Ave. in Glendale. While you are visiting, take time to enjoy the breathtaking views from the Museum’s hilltop perch.
The Forest Lawn Museum is open daily, except Mondays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Parking and admission to the Museum are always free. For additional information and group tours, please call the Museum office at (323) 340-4782.
