Chagall between war and peace is currently showing until July 21 in Paris's Musée du Luxembourg; this is a scholarly exposition of Marc Chagall's experiences through his long life which spanned the French revolution, two great wars and the intermittent periods of peace. An ideal place for you to stay, offering easy access to this exhibition is Hotel du Danube where we will go that extra mile to welcome visitors from all four corners of the world.
Chagall between war and peace an exhibition charting social history of the 20th century
In a period of massive social upheaval, this exhibition in the Musee du Luxembourg shows the artist's varying outlook as illustrated in his work over a turbulent century. When you choose to make your base at Paris's Hotel du Danube, you will be just a short walk from Chagall between war and peace (no more than 15 minutes at a pleasant stroll through Paris); one visit to this exhibition will not be enough so you can book tickets for Chagall between war and peace on the Hotel du Danube website.
After a period of wartime exile in the United States (Chagall was Jewish), he returned to France in 1949. His oeuvre from this stage of his life is marked in Chagall between war and peace by the artworks you will see which use a markedly lighter palette than that which he used during his darker days.

Hotel du Danube in close proximity to Chagall between war and peace exhibition
At the Hotel du Danube, we are in close proximity to both the exhibition and some of the districts portrayed during the artist's early life. At this time, Chagall believed Paris to be in grave danger and his artworks put this across in a bleak rendition of what he had seen. Also depicted is an interpretation of his relationship with his beloved Bella with whom he later fled. Overall, despite a gloomy backrop, this is an uplifting exhibition with many cheering highlights.
