Even so they don’t always get seen in any quantity these days which makes JohnDavies Gallery’s achievement of an exhibition with some 80 works, in particular two of his greatest series, ‘The Bible’ and ‘Les Fables de La Fontaine’ so welcome and, indeed, so pleasurable. The latter is a particular treat too, being one of just 85 that Chagall hand coloured himself; realistic and fantastic at the same time. NU THUMB nail Marc Chagall ‘A Night in Paris’
