“The sense of astonishment…”

The exhibition of autographs “The sense of astonishment…”, dedicated to the 130th anniversary of Marc Chagall and the International Museum Day runs in the Book Museum from May 18th.

Marc Chagall (1887–1985) is a Belarusian, Russian and French painter, graphic artist, stage-designer and poet of Jewish origin. He is one of the most known avant-garde artists of the 20th century, and the most famous natives of Belarus, who conquered the world with his unique style and versatility.

The talented painter left a mark in the literature as well: poetry, essays and memoirs in Yiddish were published and translated into Hebrew, Russian, Belarusian, English and French during the author’s lifetime. Marc Chagall’s autobiographical book My Life is worldly known.

The offered exhibition presents rare publications of the early 20th century with Chagall’s autographs in French and Russian, all from the stocks of the National Library of Belarus. The Paris edition of Ma vie (1931) with the author’s autograph is also on display.
