A Farewell to Art: Chagall, Shakespeare and Prospero - 3D virtual exhibition by Ben Uri Research Unit

A Farewell to Art: Chagall, Shakespeare and Prospero

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.
