Falcon Students Enjoy the University of Dallas's Art Exhibit 


Seven AP Studio Art students went to see the Chagall exhibit on March 3, 2016, at the University of Dallas’s Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery which was hosting “Marc Chagall: Intersecting Traditions.” A collection of original hand-colored, religious-themed etchings by world-renowned Jewish artist Marc Chagall (1887-1985), the masterpieces are on display until April 22, 2016, and the exhibit is free and open to the general public.
 
“Intersecting Traditions” features 50 selected etchings from “The Bible” series, which depicts scenes from the Old Testament books of Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Kings, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations and Ezekiel. The etchings on display at UD will tell familiar Bible stories such as the fall of Adam and Eve, Moses and the burning bush, Jacob’s ladder, Noah’s ark and Abraham’s sacrifice of his son, Isaac.
 
Chagall created “The Bible” series over a 25-year period. He was originally asked to begin the series in 1931 by Ambroise Vollard, a Parisian art dealer and publisher who had previously commissioned Chagall to illustrate Nicolai Gogol’s Dead Souls and Jean de La Fontaine’s Fables. By 1939, Chagall had completed 66 of the etching plates. However, the series came to a halt when Vollard died and, one year later, Chagall was briefly imprisoned by the French Vichy regime. He escaped to New York, and four years later, Chagall resumed “The Bible” project and completed the series in 1957.
 
In addition to visiting the Chagall exhibit, the students were also treated to a printmaking tutorial. For more information, please visit www.udallas.edu/chagall.
