Chagall in Moscow
Marc Chagall arrived in Moscow in 1920, where he worked in the theater. Two years later, after a series of arguments and fallings out, he left Russia forever.
Carefully examining all available sources, including new archival evidence, Elena Tolstaya artfully reconstructs the nature of Chagall’s interactions with the Russian avant-garde of the early 1920s.
The result is a nuanced portrait of a hitherto unknown Chagall, whose apocalyptic Constructivist art alienated traditional Moscow actors and whose Jewishness was deemed of the wrong sort by key figures in the emerging Jewish theatre scene.
