Summary
Marc Chagall remains one of the most popular and influential artists of the 20th century. His work is part of permanent collections of major museums all over the world. Chagall's journey as an artist led him from a small village in pre-revolutionary Russia to Paris, Israel, and New York. Influenced by Russian folklore and the Jewish tradition, Chagall introduced a new set of symbols and images in the world of painting. Fantastic images met religious symbolism in a whole new way. This book chronicles Chagall's life story and art with high quality reproductions of his paintings, analysis of the work, and illustrations and photographs of the era.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 6^-12. These two handsome volumes are part of the Masters of Art series, which also includes Francesca Romei's Leonardo da Vinci (1995). The extra-large pages are packed with small, full-color, high-quality reproductions and with lots of information about the pictures and the connections between them. Of course, the pages are cluttered, but they do a good job of introducing the artists, their times, and their techniques, materials, and working methods. Browsers can go from here to an art museum or to more focused art books with large pictures. --Hazel Rochman"
