Abstract:

"Marc Chagall, painter of dreams and desires.... Who was this visionary artist with the stories of the Jewish mystics in his head and the passion of Picasso and Matisse in his heart? Born in Russia before the Revolution, Chagall traveled to Paris as a young man and, with other experimental painters, invented a new art style, blending Cubism, Fauvism, and Surrealism with the most ancient traditions of Jewish folklore and legend. He was "drunk with images," said the novelist Andre Malraux, who commissioned him to decorate the great ceiling of the Paris opera house. In swirls of color and light Chagall captured the lost world of Russian village life, the magical domain of the circus, and the great tales of the Bible, as well as his dreams, his loves, his memories. Daniel Marchesseau retraces this beloved artist's path from his beginnings in the shtetls of Russia to avant-garde Paris, and from there to worldwide fame."--BOOK JACKET.
