Large-format hardcover edition at a new low price. All aspects of Chagall' s work are covered here, from paintings to stained glass, tapestries, ceramics, and more. His original style and his connection to the past endured throughout his seven-decade career, despite the great movements and schools of 20th century art which he saw developing around him. No doubt one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, Marc Chagall created a unique world full of pathos, poetry, humor, and enchantment, drawing on vivid memories of his Jewish upbringing in Russia.

Werner Haftmann, former director of the Nationalgalerie, Berlin, has written an introduction enriched with personal insights into the artist' s life, character and creative process. This sense of fantasy, this joyous ecstasy that pervades his paintings, his stained-glass windows, mosaics, graphics and stage designs is what has kept his art from becoming static through the decades. He went beyond the landscape, the nude, and the still life, the traditional subjects of painting, to new realms of perceptions from dreams, visions, and legends. This volume reveals the work of an acknowledged master of twentieth-century art, a painter-poet whose work is of the modern era, but also strangely timeless. Forty large colour plates are accompanied by commentaries that demonstrate the mystery and beauty of the art of Marc Chagall. Chagall widened the scope of painting, making fantasy images just as important as visible reality and giving even natural objects legendary and mythical associations. His amazing colours, inspired by Russian folklore and the work of the Fauves, seem to sing. The poet Apollinaire called Chagall' s work ' supernatural' and André Breton, the spokesman of Surrealism, wrote ' … through Chagall and Chagall alone, metaphor made its triumphal entry into modern painting' . Born in 1887 in Vitebsk, in Russia, where life was deeply rooted in jewish tradition and religion, the Russian folklore he had absorbed as a child provide the basis for much of the imagery in his art. Chagall developed a new pictorial language, one filled with fresh imagery that expresses emotions from the world of the unseen and the irrational.

When a portion of these Biblical illustrations were presented as an exhibition, the New York Times exclaimed that Chagall' s art was a lively and enriching way for anyone, no matter how deeply or how casually schooled in the Bible, to become reacquainted with scenes and stories from the Old Testament conveyed by an assured hand in an endearing style. Chagall' s illustrations reflect his Jewish heritage and his view of the complex relationship between God and man, presaging many of the subjects and themes in his later work.
