From Booklist
Art lovers might think they know Chagall's work inside out, but a fresh look at this utterly original painter makes readers realize that perceptions of Chagall's achievements have narrowed and calcified over the years. In the first substantial monograph on Chagall in two decades, French museum director Foray awakens new appreciation for the aesthetic consequences of the artist's "fundamental ambivalance." A Russian Jew who depicted his hometown, Vitebsk, and rural Jewish life with great affection, he also evoked the aura of the country in which he lived in exile, France, and often painted Christian themes. Chagall was amphibian, too, in his approach to modernism, adopting a cubist style without abandoning his proclivity for old-fashioned allegory. Inspired by his fascination with the theater and the circus, Chagall...


The World to Come

Book Review
Following in the footsteps of her breakout debut In the Image, Dara Horn's second novel, The World to Come, is an intoxicating combination of mystery, spirituality, redemption, piety, and passion. Using a real-life art heist as her starting point, Horn traces the life and times of several characters, including Russian-born artist Marc Chagall, the New Jersey-based Ziskind family, and the "already-weres" and "not-yets" who roam an eternal world that exists outside the boundaries of life on earth.

At the center of the story is Benjamin Ziskind, a former child prodigy who now spends his days writing questions for a television trivia show. After Ben's twin sister Sara forces him to attend a singles cocktail party at a Jewish museum, Ben spots Over Vitebsk, a Chagall sketch that once hung in the twins'...

Book Review
Henry Miller once described Marc Chagall as a "poet with the wings of a painter." The pages of Chagall are filled with images that prove the writer's words true. Though Chagall is remembered primarily as a painter, his artistic vision expressed itself in many other forms, including sculpture, mosaics, and the stained glass windows that grace the Art Institute of Chicago as well as synagogues and churches in both Europe and the United States. The volume affords readers glimpses of his profligate work as well as the opportunity to follow Chagall as he moved from his early years in Russia to Paris, the United States, and back to France. During that time, his painting flirted with the various art movements around him--surrealism and fauvism most notably--but his dominant themes remained constant throughout the seven...

Dreamer from the Village: The Story of Marc Chagall
Michele Markel

Hardcover
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 1-4–Opening with the artist's dramatic birth during a fire in a small Russian village, Markel describes Chagall's childhood and early career. The village, his extended family, and deep Jewish roots are all emphasized, elements that are central to understanding his art. The author explains how Chagall saw the world, and himself, in a different way. He painted the way he felt, not how things actually were, which makes his work unique. The language is often poetic: The town was like a richness that filled him and later: silver stars trembled on a velvet spring sky. Markel makes Chagall and his work accessible to children. Indeed, children are closer to the world of dreams and imagination than most adults, and many will find his work very appealing. The vivid illustrations are inspired by Chagall,...

Marc Chagall, Vol. 13
Andrew Kagan

From Publishers Weekly
Marc Chagall (1887-1985) knew that he led a charmed existence. Like his famed floating figures, the artist managed to soar above the tragedies that threatened to engulf him, including the Russian Revolution and World War II. "He was blessed with limitless energy and self-confidence, with the resilience to survive trials, and with a readiness to find fulfillment in his work and in his love of those near to him," reports art historian Kagan ( Paul Klee: Art and Music ). In lucid, polished prose, Kagan reviews Chagall's experiences and achievements, from his childhood in the Russian town of Vitebsk to his glory days in France, and writes knowledgeably of the artist's dreamy, poetic images and his brilliance as a colorist. While noting that critics do not always admire Chagall's work, Kagan does not present their...
