Marc Chagall by Werner Haftmann( Book )

11 editions published between 1973 and 1998 in English and French and held by 1,078 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marc Chagall's art transforms the visible world, human emotions, and the realm of dream and memory into unforgettable pictorial poetry. The vitality and joy of his paintings and his genius as a colorist won him the admiration of critics and laymen alike. Working in an extraordinarily wide range of mediums--painting, graphics, stage design, pottery, sculpture, ceramic murals, mosaics, and stain-glass windows--he created a body of work that places him among the greatest masters of the twentieth century. Chagall grew up in the small Russian town of Vitebsk, where life in the Jewish community was deeply rooted in religion, and he drew on his memories and visions of his native town as a major source of inspiration throughout his life. The other focal point of his life and art was Paris, to which he first came in 1910 and which he revisited many times later in his life. During his first ten years there he met the major painters and poets of the early modern period, and absorbed the concepts of Cubism and Orphism, which nourished the development of his own unique style. Chagall's art never became static, but moved with the events and ideas around him. He was especially affected by the tragedies of World War II, and during that time created a number of his finest works. In his later years he increased the religious motifs of his repertoire, as in his beautiful and famous stained-glass windows. The author, Dr. Werner Haftmann, formerly Director of the Nationalgalerie, Berlin, provides us with a thorough study of Chagall's art, enriched with warm personal insights into his character, life, and creative processes. Forty-nine large colorplates are accompanied by individual analytical commentaries. The color reproductions are supplemented by numerous black-and-white illustrations throughout the text, plus a special section of drawings and graphic works. A biographical outline and a selected bibliography are also provided."--Publisher's description
Daphnis and Chloe by Longus( Book )

38 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in English and German and held by 1,014 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 by Marc Chagall( Book )

15 editions published in 2003 in 3 languages and held by 867 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 Jacob Baal-Teshuva( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

FINE ARTS A time traveler who left an ancient way of life in a remote Russian village for the sophisticated world of 20th-century Paris and its inner circle of literary and artistic innovators, Marc Chagall (1887-1985) superseded nature through metaphor. He reinvented his past and his dreams over and over as a chronicler of the Jewish experience. Baal-Teshuva, whose previous works include a monograph on Warhol (Andy Warhol 1928-1987, LJ 4/1/93), affectionately conveys the details of the artist's life, his roots in Vitebsk, his lovers, and his many works in paint, poetry, lithography, ceramics, tapestry, mosaics, sculpture, and stained glass with the intimacy and naturalness of a friend of 35 years. Written in clear, accessible prose and lavishly illustrated with reproductions that demonstrate the brilliant colors of the artist's palate, this book is an excellent choice as an introductory text for students. Recommended for school and public libraries where there is an interest in this extremely popular 20th-century artist as well as for Judaica and comprehensive special collections.

Marc Chagall and the lost Jewish world : the nature of Chagall's art and iconography by Benjamin Harshav( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 756 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."--Jacket

Marc Chagall, 1887-1985 : painting as poetry by Ingo F Walther( Book )

16 editions published between 1990 and 2012 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Belarusian painter Marc Chagall (1887-1985) is widely regarded as epitomizing the "painter as poet". The worldwide admiration he commanded remains unparalleled by any artist of the century. Chagall's paintings, steeped in mythology and mysticism, portray colourful dreams and tales that are deeply rooted in his Russian Jewish origins. The memories and yearning they evoke recall his native Vitebsk, and the great events that mark the life of ordinary people: birth, love, marriage and death. They tell of a world full of everyday miracles - in the room of lovers, on the streets of Vitebsk, beneath the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Heaven and earth seem to meet in a topsy-turvy world in which whimsical figures of people and animals float through the air with gravity-defying serenity."--Publisher description

Marc Chagall and his times : a documentary narrative by Benjamin Harshav( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 646 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."--Jacket

Marc Chagall : my life, my dream : Berlin and Paris, 1922-1940 by Susan P Compton( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While living in Berlin, then Paris, from 1922 to 1940, Chagall (1887-1985) learned the technique of etching and received lucrative commissions as a book illustrator. From the hundreds of etchings done during these two decades, Compton has paired 79 black-and-white etchings with colorful paintings and preparatory gouaches, allowing comparison of one medium with another. Rich imagery is evident in four major series of illustrations Chagall created for Gogol's Dead Souls, La Fontaine's Fables, the Old Testament, and his memoirs. Whether the themes are whimsical or solemn, fantasy merges with reality, distinguishing the works of this beguiling artist. Originally published in German, this is the catalog for a recent show in Germany. Clear plates and intelligent text add insight to an often neglected segment of Chagall's oeuvre. Recommended for general and special collections. -- Joan Levin, Indian Trails P.L., Wheeling, Ill
