The oeuvre of Marc Chagall is for the first time presented so completely in St Petersburg. The exposition includes 65 paintings and 82 graphic works. The exhibition includes works from the Russian Museum collection, the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, the National Museum of Modern Art, Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Musée national Message Biblique Marc Chagall in Nice, the Beieler Foundation in Basel, museums of Pskov, Saratov and Tula, Isaac Brodsky Memorial Museum in St Petersburg and private collections in Russia and abroad, the major part of which has never been exposed before. The exposition also includes works from the artist's family collection which rarely were exposed during the artist's life. This exhibition allows the viewer to get the most complete impression of the artist's oeuvre of seven decades and to follow the evolution of the master's creative development both in Russia and abroad. The exhibition in the Russian Museum follows the exhibition in the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, however, it has different content. A catalogue for the exhibition has been published. The exposition is organized with the support of Vneshtorgbank
