The School of Paris was not a school at all but the name subsequently given to the artists, many of whom were Jewish, who mostly came from Eastern Europe and the Russian Empire, arriving in Paris between 1904 and 1914. They included Marc Chagall, Amedeo Modigliani, Chaim Soutine, Jules Pascin, Sonia Delaunay, Jacques Lipchitz, Moïse Kisling and Ossip Zadkine.
The exhibition at the Musée d’art et d’histoire du Judaïsme in the Marias district of Paris is devoted to these artists and their participation in the artistic scene in what was then the capital of modern art.
