LUMIÈRE-LIBERTÉ: JEWISH ARTISTS IN PARIS c.1910-1939
Talk by Monica Bohm-Duchen
Thursday 18 July 2013, 18.30pm – 20.30pm
Manchester Art Gallery is collaborating with Manchester Jewish Museum and Tate Liverpool on a series of events that focus on Jewish artists. Many of the foreign artists who flocked to Paris in the early decades of the 20th century were Jews from Russia and Eastern Europe.
As part of a programme accompanying the exhibitions Chagall, Soutine & the School of Paris at Manchester Jewish Museum and Chagall: Modern Master at Tate Liverpool, Monica Bohm-Duchen is giving a lecture that will set this remarkable phenomenon in its broader social, political and artistic context. Monica will also be signing copies of her publications on Chagall.
This is also an opportunity to link to the paintings by Jewish artists in the collections of Manchester Art Gallery.
Manchester Jewish Museum is offering FREE entry to the Museum, including their exhibition Chagall, Soutine and the School of Paris, to everyone who books a ticket for this talk. Keep your Eventbrite ticket and take it with you to the Museum.
