AGO - Chagall and the Russian Avante Garde
On the side of the artists where Chagall sees himself, he has incorporated a retrospective of his previous iconic images including the wandering beggar man, the fiddler, the bride and groom and various animals (seated donkey, lambs). Chagall has foreshadowed his exile from Russia in this painting since he is not able to fit into the side of the Revolutionists.
Once again, the AGO has presented an interesting exhibit that expands our understanding of different art styles from different cultures and time periods.
