A pioneer of modernism and one of the great figurative artists of the 20th century, Marc Chagall is also beloved for the distinctively joyous and imaginative quality of his paintings. Wullschlager brilliantly describes both the art itself and the life of the artist as he was creating it.
From the Publisher:
An insightful portrait of the Russian-born modernist artist describes his stunning studies of the lost world of Eastern European Jewry in his paintings of the shtetl life of his childhood, his pioneering role in twentieth-century art, his colorful personal life, and his lasting artistic legacy, in a study highlighted by more than forty reproductions of important paintings. 25,000 first printing.An insightful portrait of the Russian-born modernist artist describes his stunning studies of the lost world of Eastern European Jewry in his paintings of the shtetl life of his childhood, his pioneering role in twentieth-century art, his colorful personal life, and his lasting artistic legacy, in a study highlighted by more than forty reproductions of important paintings. 25,000 first printing.
Annotation:
A long and vivid biography of the painter Marc Chagall, whose loving memories of his humble Jewish childhood in the small Russian town Vitebsk would become the subject for his celebrated paintings full of color, whimsy, humor, and life.

Praise
