A Farewell to Art: Chagall, Shakespeare and Prospero is the first UK exhibition of a rare limited edition portfolio by Marc Chagall, which features 50 illustrations created to reflect his interpretation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. The exhibition draws on a number of themes, including the relationship between Shakespeare’s Renaissance characters and Chagall’s own imaginary mythological world. Chagall saw Shakespeare’s Tempest as symbolic of the tempest that engulfed his own life and the traumatic experiences of European Jews in the first half of the twentieth century.
This exhibition is available as a touring pack. For more information please see our Museum Partnerships page.
