Description for the presentation 2015-2016 in the National Museum of Modern Art

It was at the La Ruche studio complex in Paris that Marc Chagall painted À la Russie, aux ânes et aux autres [To Russia, Donkeys and Others] in 1911. The work evidences the painter’s attachment to his origins in its many explicit references to Russian Jewish culture. Particularly interested in the Torah, Chagall translates his textual sources into metaphorical visions, lyrical and poetic, rendered in vibrant colours. Fascinated by the combination of folkloric imagery with an innovative Cubist style, Guillaume Apollinaire showed this picture at the Sturm gallery in Berlin in 1914.
