Marc Chagall ( Book )
197 editions published between 1933 and 2010 in 14 languages and held by 1,533 libraries worldwide
Marc Chagall is one of the twentieth century's favorite artists, known and admired for his rich palette, his inventive approach, his accessible subjects, and the rich traditions behind his work. Combining fantasy, spirituality, and nostalgia with a distinctive modern painting style, Chagall's canvases are infused with a joyous, dreamlike simplicity. Even as styles shifted from Cubism to Suprematism to Surrealism, his work remained individual and idiosyncratic-sometimes harming his art world reputation, but never his popular appeal. Lavishly illustrated with more than one hundred and fifty color reproductions, Marc Chagall is the first full-scale survey of the artist's work in nearly twenty years. An introductory essay by exhibition curator Jean-Michel Foray contextualizes the Russian-born artist's work, while a heavily illustrated chronology of Chagall's life assembled by Meret Meyer Graber and Jakov Bruk details the many stages of his career. The work is organized into four sections, each with an introduction by Foray, to help make sense of the artist's prodigious oeuvre. This catalogue is published on the occasion of a major retrospective conceived by Reunion des Musees Nationaux, Paris, with the Musee National Message Biblique Marc Chagall, Nice, and co-organized with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
My life by Marc Chagall ( Book )
131 editions published between 1931 and 2011 in 17 languages and held by 1,328 libraries worldwide
Completed by Marc Chagall (1887-1985) in 1922, this lyrical, evocative, and unique book is a key work to understanding the life and art of this creative genius who has come to be known as the "Father of Surrealism." His deep roots in Jewish tradition-religious and secular-are reflected in these recollections of his poverty-stricken youth in White Russia, to his involvement in the Paris art world prior to World War I, and back again to Russia until his decision in 1923 to finally return to Paris. "Belongs unmistakably to the world of his paintings...it flickers with sharp responses and vivid phrases." -- New Statesman.
Marc Chagall, 1887-1985 by Jacob Baal-Teshuva ( Book )
15 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and French and held by 983 libraries worldwide
A thorough record of the life and art of Marc Chagall, a Russo-French Jewish artist associated with several major artistic styles and one of the most successful artists of the 20th century. This work, written by a longtime friend of Chagall's, spans his early work in Russia and the monumental pieces of his later life. An early modernist, he created works in virtually every artistic medium, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints. This work contains reproductions that capture his use of intense, glowing colors and the unique world he created, full of magic, enchantment, and fantasy.

Daphnis and Chloe by Longus ( Book )
26 editions published between 1961 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 834 libraries worldwide
In 1831 Goethe called Daphnis and Chloe 'a masterpiece ... in which Understanding, Art, and Taste appear at their highest point, and beside which the good Virgil retreats somewhat into the background ... One would do well to read it every year, to be instructed by it again and again, and to receive anew the impression of its great beauty. 'Touching yet humorous, naive and at the same time highly sophisticated, Daphnis and Chloe is the story of a shepherd boy and girl who fall desperately in love yet find themselves facing great obstacles, because in their passion they behave, as the author says, even more awkwardly 'than rams and ewes.'.

"Marc Chagall is one of the most popular artists of the 20[superscript th] century, famous for his poetic, surreal images that represent a topsy-turvy world, combining fantasy and spirituality with a modernist style. This new book offers insight into Chagall's Jewish roots and offers succinct interpretations of his major paintings, from his early masterpieces made in Russia and in Paris to his Yiddish art theater paintings. The book acts as a guide to the iconography of Chagall's best-loved works."--BOOK JACKET.

Marc Chagall and his times : a documentary narrative by Benjamin Harshav ( Book )
16 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 643 libraries worldwide
"This book presents a new and comprehensive biography of one of the most prominent artists of the twentieth century in dialogues with the events and ideologies of his time. It includes hundreds of private letters and documents written by Chagall and his contemporaries in Russian, Yiddish, French, English, and other languages, translated by Benjamin and Barbara Harshav into English and placed in their personal and historical context. The narrative encompasses Chagall's long life (1887-1985) in Russia, France, and the United States, as well as in Germany and Israel. It also explores his deep roots in folk culture, his personal relationships and loves, and his involvement with the art of the Russian Revolution, Surrealism, Communism, Zionism, Yiddish literature, and the State of Israel. The book exposes the complex relationships between Chagall's three cultural identities: Jewish, Russian, and French. It is a biography of the turbulent times of the twentieth century and the transformations of a Jew in it - his meteoric rise from the "ghetto" of the Russian Pale of Settlement to the centers of modern culture." "Marc Chagall and His Times provides a major contribution to the understanding of some of the central problems of modern art: originality, the interaction between the formal discoveries of the avant garde and cultural or multi-cultural representation, and the relations between an artist's art and his personal biography."--BOOK JACKET.
