Marc Chagall’s granddaughter, Bella Meyer, shares childhood memories of the iconic artist and provides personal insight into his involvement as Fine Arts Commissar in Vitebsk and founder of the revolutionary People’s Art School. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition «Chagall, Lissitzky, Malevich: The Russian Avant-Garde in Vitebsk, 1918-1922.»

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Born in Paris and raised in Switzerland, Bella Meyer was born immersed in the world of art. She always painted while studying art history and obtaining her Ph.D in medieval art history from the Sorbonne. Bella taught art history, wrote numerous academic papers and delivered informative, first hand experiences in lecture form, of her grandfather Marc Chagall’s work. Invited to take on responsibilities for the Visual Arts at the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Bella settled in New York, where she held this position for a number of years. Adding to her expanding list of accomplishments, she has had her hand in costume design and mask-making for a number of theatre performances and also created many puppets for her own puppet show productions. Bella's passion for beauty and aesthetics, led her to become a floral designer. In a recent publication Bella describes her love for flowers, “to discover its essence—opening, life, death—is to experience an unimaginable mystery.” Bella founded FleursBELLA, a floral design and décor company, in 2005, focusing her talents on creating floral arrangements much in the way an artist paints.
