schema:reviewBody""Marc Chagall (1887-1985) traversed a long route from a boy in the Jewish Pale of Settlement to a commissar of art in revolutionary Russia, to the position of a world-famous French artist. This book presents for the first time a comprehensive collection of Chagall's public statements on art and culture. The documents and interviews shed light on his rich, versatile, and enigmatic art from within his own mental world. The book raises the problems of a multicultural artist with several intersecting identities and the tensions between modernist form and cultural representation in twentieth-century art. It reveals the travails and achievements of his life as a Jew in the twentieth century and his perennial concerns with Jewish identity and destiny, Yiddish literature, and the state of Israel. This collection includes annotations and introductions of the Chagall texts by the Benjamin Harshav that elucidate the texts and convey the changing cultural contexts of Chagall's life."--BOOK JACKET."
