A tour dedicated to the life and work of our prominent compatriot, Vitebsk native, one of the brightest representatives of the 20th century Avant garde, Marc Chagall, was conducted in the library on 6 March.
Together with the guide, students of the school No. 76 in Minsk plunged into the famous artist’s world, which is mysterious and filled with metaphors. The excursionists were able to learn a lot of interesting facts from the biography of Marc Chagall and the history of love to his wife, art and birthplace. The students also watched a multimedia presentation, trying to analyze the master's paintings, and turned the leaves of books about the artist from the stocks of the National Library of Belarus.
The students were particularly interested in publications with the autographs of Marc Chagall, including the autobiographical book of the artist Ma vie (My Life), which was translated into French by Bella Chagall and signed by the author for the Turgenev Library in Paris, in 1933.
The series “Outstanding People of the Motherland” also includes the tours devoted to Maxim Bogdanovich, Kondrat Krapiva, Yanka Kupala, Yakub Kolas, Mikhas Zaretsky and Francysk Skaryna.
We invite everyone interested to the National Library of Belarus!
