Sylvie Forestier

Sylvie Forestier was general conservateur of Chagall’s artistic heritage. For over twelve years she directed the Musée National Biblique “Marc Chagall” in Nice, and next the Collections Nationales d’Art Moderne of the Provence-Alpes- Côte d’Azur. She had a philosophical background and was professor at the École du Louvre. She worked particularly in the areas of religious iconography before devoting her-self to Marc Chagall’s work. Author of several books on the artist, she has devoted a special attention to the task of introducing the public to the lesser known aspects of his artistic production: sculptures, ceramics, and the works that are in connection with the architectural or scenic areas. She has curated numerous national and international exhibitions and is considered one of Marc Chagall’s specialists.
