One of the first important exhibition projects at the “Slavianski Bazaar in Vitebsk” was the presentation of two original paintings by Marc Chagall, brought from Pskov. The exhibition was opened on July 12, 2016 at the Art Museum.
The residents of Pskov brought two early works from the so-called Vitebsk cycle - art critics value it most of all, and the paintings of this period are the most expensive. This also applies to the graphic work "Black Lovers", dated 1914-1915, and the famous painting (in an unusual technique - oil on paper on cardboard) "Bathing a Child", written in 1916. Both were in Belarus for the first time. The frames for the two paintings in the exhibition hall were photographs of the artist’s family published in the publication “Marc Chagall. "Hello, Motherland!"
