Early impressions of Marc Chagall

The show is focused on early pieces Chagall created after moving to Paris following the Russian Revolution of 1917. Though deeply affected by the violence he witnessed, Chagall continued to create works that reflected the beauty he saw in life. “Chagall: The Early Etchings of the 1920s” also includes five colored Chagall lithographs. Through Dec. 11. 4484 Peachtree Road N.E., Atlanta. 404-364-8555, HOWARD POUSNER
