Richmond synagogue Temple Beth Hillel will host an art talk about famed 20th century painter Marc Chagall on April 12 as part of the Sunday Morning Bagel Brunch series.
The event will take place from 10:15 a.m. to noon at Temple Beth Hillel, 801 Park Central (Hilltop exit off I-80).
Rene’e Powell, a Temple Beth Hillel member and artist and teacher, will lead a discussion on Chagall’s relationship to Judaism.
Chagall, one of the greatest internationally-recognized modern artists, has been described as a poetic painter who is known for creating 12 stained-glass windows at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem.
“Many of Chagall’s themes center around his steadfast attempts to reconcile his personal history as an Eastern European Jew, with all the traditions of Hassidism, and yet be immersed in many styles of the modern world,” according to organizers of the Temple Beth Hillel event.
Attendees at the bagel brunch will explore several of Chagall’s works and his personal history as a Jewish artist.
Correction: An earlier version of this story said the event was on April 11, when it is in fact on Sunday, April 12.
