    Marc Chagall 1887-1985 Russian-French Suigeneris: Fantasy, Neo-Primitive, Realism, Cubism, Symbolism, Proto-Surrealism

    Marc Chagall portrayed archetypes, his memories and works from his imagination. Bach, Mozart and the music from his Hasidic, Jewish community influenced him and his art. He moved around a lot in his life and his “floating fiddler” image of the wandering Jew is symbolically portrayed in much of his art. Also, we are fortunate to have a number of Chagall’s creations in Chicago. All of this will be presented in this class.

    Piet Mondrian 1872-1944 Dutch Abstraction

    Piet Mondrian, an artist, theorist and writer, is best known for his growth to purity of abstraction (Neo-Plasticism), which evolved from a spiritual order he saw underlying the visual world. He was fascinated with rhythm and duration, and music was a source of inspiration for him, especially jazz. His “Broadway Boogie-Woogie” of 1942-43 is a fine example of this fascination and inspiration. In his later art works he used variations of line and shapes in three primary colors to express his ideas. This class will present his art and ideas.
