Tour of the Exhibition “Paris Magnétique”

At the start of the twentieth century, Paris was a magnet for artists from around the world. Among them were numerous Jewish artists, who are now represented in the exhibition Paris Magnétique with 120 paintings, sculptures and drawings. Together with a guide, you will immerse yourself in the French capital of that time, in the meeting points and studios of well-known and lesser-known artists – such as Marc Chagall, Amedeo Modigliani, Chana Orloff, Sonia Delaunay, Jacques Lipchitz and others – and discover in the “School of Paris” a cosmopolitan art scene that, as part of the Parisian avant-garde, shaped today’s understanding of Western modernist art.
