This collection showcases the ardent passion of both Marc Chagall and Theo Tobiasse whose works are overflowing with rich colour and form often presented with a dreamlike whimsy. Juxtaposed with the more abstract approach of Leger whose works are characterized by a heavy black line and primary colour. All three artist’s emotions speak through their art with subjects ranging from the intimate love of a woman, the enduring warmth of a mother and child, the dedication of an artist to the canvas, the peace found in spiritual teachings, and the imagination fired by a circus performance.

Expressionist art tends to be emotional, even mystical, with clear roots in Cubism. Rather than trying to accurately represent the world, as artists had been doing since the Renaissance, Expressionist artists sought to express their subjective inner emotions, fantasies, or thoughts independent from “reality”. In this way, Expressionism can be seen as a rejection of the Impressionism movement that came before it and a precursor to Abstract art.

The exhibition brings together more than one hundred & fifty paintings, drawings, lithographs, and etchings. A major highlight of the Avenue of Expression: Chagall, Tobiasse & Leger are the original limestones from the renowned publisher who worked with 20th-century masters including Chagall, Leger, Matisse & Picasso to create beautiful lithographs. These are seldom ever available to see even in prominent museums – truly a unique glimpse into the medium of lithography and the acclaimed master colourist Marc Chagall.
