Chagall

£60.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This book presents a 'complete works' biography of the artist Marc Chagall, including a number of his poems as well as a history of his life.

Marc Zakharovich Chagall (1887–1985) was a Russian-French artist of Belarusian Jewish origin. An early modernist, he was associated with several major artistic styles and created works in virtually every artistic format, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints. Variously described as "the quintessential Jewish artist of the twentieth century" or "the last survivor of the first generation of European modernists", he himself saw his work as "not the dream of one people but of all humanity")

Art critic Robert Hughes referred to Chagall as (though Chagall . According to art historian Michael J. Lewis, Chagall was considered to be . For decades, he "had also been respected as the world's preeminent Jewish artist". Using the medium of stained glass, he produced windows for the cathedrals of Reims and Metz, windows for the UN, and the Jerusalem Windows in Israel. He also did large-scale paintings, including part of the ceiling of the Paris Opéra. He experienced modernism's "golden age" in Paris, where "he synthesised the art forms of Cubism, Symbolism, and Fauvism, and the influence of Fauvism gave rise to Surrealism". Yet throughout these phases of his style "he remained most emphatically a Jewish artist, whose work was one long dreamy reverie of life in his native village of Vitebsk."

Our copy is in acceptable condition only, bound in a stiff card cover with coloured dust jacket (protected by a plastic outer cover), showing relatively little external wear. Inside, however, the binding is fragile, with pp. 53 to 68 detached but present, and the pages between the colophon and p.11 missing. Text is in French. Many illustrations, both coloured and B/W. Pages are all clean and unmarked.
