the Steps of Marc Chagall
a trip in the footsteps of the great artist Marc Chagall would
have to start in Witebsk (Whiterussia). It would have to lead
to Berlin, passing St. Petersburg and the vicissitudes of the
October revolution. And the tour should not miss the world known
glass windows of the Hadassah hopsital in Jerusalem. But with
this travel idea we limit the travels to a selection of his
work which still can be seen in France and Switzerland.
Travelling in a modern private coach the tour first goes to Sarrebourg
in France. After check in and a good welcome meal in the hotel you
will attend an introduction to the life of Marc Chagall. Being one
of the most important artists of the 20th century his works are
the expression of a deep religiosity. Chagall had a high sensitivity
for the questions, joys, and aspirations of people. Through his
works he made religious questions tangible and touched many lives.
After breakfast you'll visit the former Franciscan monastery with
Chagall's largest single window La Paix'. In the afternoon
travel to Zurich and check in at a hotel for two nights.
