Marc Chagall. The ceiling of the Opera Garnier
DescriptionThroughout his life, the painter Marc Chagall gave meaning to the choice he had made of painting as a means of expression.
"It was more necessary to me than food. It seemed to me like a window through which I could have flown to another world." Marc Chagall
The same wonder is found in many drawings and sketches, in watercolor, pastel or Indian ink, probably less known. This motif takes up the monumental canvas of 220 m² inaugurated in 1964 and requested by André Malraux for the ceiling of the Opéra Garnier. © ADAGP, Paris, 2019 - Chagall ®
Bernardaud has today become a major reference for French porcelain.
Since 1863, its success is due to an ability to combine tradition and innovation, know-how and good manners, crafts and industry, which explains the richness, vitality and uniqueness of this house.
Inseparable from Limoges, where the famous kaolin, the white clay essential for making hard, white and translucent porcelain, was discovered in 1768, Bernardaud is proud to have remained a family business and celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2013.
