One of the twentieth century's most beloved painters, Marc Chagall is known for his lyrical works that are filled with
images of religion, childhood memories, and dreams. This
richly illustrated volume presents a cross-section of his
workchronologically arranged illustrations of some of his
most vibrant oil paintings, gouaches, and watercolors.
Accompanying these reproductions are essays that
illuminate Chagall's life, recount his experiences in Russia,
France, and later the United States, and examine the artistic
influence of the Western avant-garde on his work. Together
they celebrate an artist for whom painting was an expression
of love, life, and faith.
