Nick Smith introduces us to the work of Chagall & artists of the Russian Jewish Theater.

Devoted to the extraordinary artwork created for Russian Jewish theater productions in the 1920s and 1930s, this exhibition will bring to light a remarkable period in the early years of the Soviet Union when innovative visual artists, including Marc Chagall, Natan Altman, and Robert Falk, joined forces with avant-garde playwrights, actors, and theatrical producers.

Chagall and the artists of the Russian Jewish Theater, 1919-1949, opens Thursday, April 23 through September 7, 2009 at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.
