Marc Chagall, Alice Halicka, Henri Hayden, Moïse Kisling, Jacques Lipchitz, Louis Marcoussis, Amedeo Modigliani, Chana Orloff, Jules Pascin, Chaïm Soutine, Ossip Zadkine and many others: it is to this generation of Jewish artists who arrived between 1904 and 1914 and to their destinies that the Museum of Jewish Art and History is dedicating the exhibition "Paris for School, 1905-1940".
It explores the reasons for their settlement in Paris, the special ties that united them - cultural, aesthetic or emotional -, the historical and political framework of their work - the effervescence of the avant-garde, the First World War, the Roaring Twenties, the rise of nationalism - and, of course, their participation in an art scene synonymous with Paris, the capital of modern art.
The catalog includes all the works and their cartels, short didactic texts, chronology, maps: the entirety of what you are going to see, what you have seen, your visit in an identical way, enriched with biographies, quotations, photographs and period documents. A ticket for an unlimited period of time so that the temporary exhibition becomes your permanent collection.
Exhibition of the same name at the musée d'Art et d'Histoire du Judaïsme from 8 April 2021 to 29 August 2021.
