With art history teacher Osnat Lippa
Music was a constant source of inspiration for Marc Chagall, serving as an internal rhythm for his compositions, and a key to the intensity of colours in his designs for the Opera, Ballet and Jewish Theatre.

Mark Chagall is known to have a very strong sense of colour in his work. What not many people know is that from the onset of his career Chagall had a profound connection to music as well.

A new and the biggest Canadian exhibition devoted to the work of Mark Chagall in the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts seeks to demonstrate the deeply ingrained musicality in all of Chagall's works and his creations for the stage. In this lecture series we will explore Chagall's work in all the different stages of his career and how music played a vital role in it.
