Most widely held works by Marc Chagall
Marc Chagall by Werner Haftmann ( Book )
166 editions published between 1922 and 2005 in 12 languages and held by 3,300 WorldCat member 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

Marc Chagall, 1887-1985 by Ingo F Walther ( Book )
69 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in 10 languages and held by 1,872 WorldCat member 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 & Chloe by Longus ( Book )
35 editions published between 1961 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This sole surviving bucolic novel of ancient Greek origin was written by Longus, a poet about whom nothing else is known, and dates to about the mid third century A.D. The lyrical beauty and sensual frankness of the story have found admirers from Shakespeare to Jacob Burckhardt, and have exerted lasting influence on European literature. It was not until 1810 that the first complete manuscript of Daphnis and Chloe was discovered, in Florence. This provided the basis for the present, superb translation, done in 1956 by Paul Turner
Marc Chagall and the lost Jewish world : the nature of Chagall's art and iconography by Benjamin Harshav ( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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 )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member 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

Arabian nights : four tales from a Thousand and one nights ( Book )
6 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Inspired by the powerful magic of the tales in A Thousand and One Nights, Marc Chagall created a series of stunning coloured lithographs to illustrate four of them, perfectly mirroring the colourful splendour of the Orient, with its mystery and poetry. The original translation by the British explorer, linguist and Orientalist Sir Richard F. Burton (1821-90) captures the very essence of the tales, and reflects the fascinating experience gathered by the translator during his extensive travels." "Marc Chagall: Arabian Nights reproduces the subtle, iridescent colours of the original lithographs together with the texts of the four classic love stories that Chagall selected."--Jacket
