Summary:
"One of the best-loved artists of the twentieth century, Marc Chagall (1887-1985) is paradoxically one of the least understood. Although his colourful images of flying cows and floating lovers may seem naive, and he promoted a view of himself as an intuitive genius, he was in fact a complex and sophisticated individual."--BOOK JACKET.

Although his colourful images of flying cows and floating lovers may seem naive, and he promoted a view of himself as an intuitive genius, he was in fact a complex and sophisticated individual."--BOOK JACKET. "In this book, Monica Bohm-Duchen places the artist firmly in his social, religious and cultural context, examining his prodigious output not only in painting but also in book illustration, theatre design, stained glass and poetry. She follows Chagall from his Russian-Jewish childhood, through his encounter with the Parisian avant-garde in the period prior to World War I and his activities in revolutionary Russia, to his later years in America and the South of France, where he died at the age of ninety-seven. The first survey of Chagall's work to take full advantage of new material available to the West since glasnost, the book encourages a critical reappraisal of all phases of the artist's long career."--Jacket."
