Chagall and the Opera Garnier in Paris

In 1964, Chagall was commissioned to create a new ceiling for the Opéra Garnier in Paris. This work is one of his most famous achievements.

The work was inaugurated in 1964 to celebrate Chagall's 80th birthday and 20 years since the liberation of Paris. This commission represented a challenge for Chagall, who had never worked on such a scale before. The ceiling of the Paris Opera is 220 square meters, it is divided into 12 panels. This spectacular painting depicts muses, musical instruments, and elements of opera and dance. Chagall incorporated his unique style into it. Mixing bright colors and whimsical patterns, to create a spectacular vibrant and dynamic ceiling.

Chagall's ceiling was met with mixed opinions upon its initial presentation. Indeed, some critics considered it too modern and not traditional enough for a place as prestigious as the Paris Opera. Nevertheless, today it is considered one of Paris' artistic treasures, attracting thousands of visitors each year.

The Chagall exhibition at the Atelier des Lumières is widely acclaimed by the public and art critics. This immersive artistic experience is considered a new and original way to discover the works of Chagall and appreciate them in a different light. This event is a real success for the Atelier des Lumières and for the Parisian art scene.
