Marc Chagall : origins and paths by Marc Chagall( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and French and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marc Chagall's pictures are artistic celebrations of love and life; aglow with color, his works lend unique expression to our dreams and desires. People and animals as well as churches and houses from his native town Vitebsk were rich sources of inspiration for Chagall.They are the leitmotif that runs through his work; in their various manifestations, they fill the oil paintings, gouaches, and watercolors reproduced in this volume. The essays illuminate Chagall's life and examine the artistic influences exerted on his work by the Western avant-garde
Chagall : the stained glass windows by Sylvie Forestier( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marc Chagall, as other famous artists of the twentieth century, has worked in various genres of the visual arts, but no one has launched the monumental art of stained glass like Chagall. Windows in Metz, Saarburg, Mainz, Reims, Pocantico, Jerusalem, Nice, and Zurich are highlighted here, along with documentation of the enormous preparatory work and the various stages of designing and coloring the windows"--Provided by publisher
Chagall and music( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the connection between Chagall and music. This intimate relationship, which ran deep in both his family history and the Jewish culture of his native city, was particularly meaningful in his creation of scenery and costumes for the stage. His works for the Jewish Theatre (Moscow, 1919-1920) and the ballets 'Aleko' (Mexico, 1942), 'The Firebird' (New York, 1945), 'Daphnis et Chloé' (1958) and 'The Magic Flute' (New York, 1967) celebrate the links he established between music, large-scale set design, and the material design of costumes. Chagall's monumental projects in the 1960s, such as the ceiling of the Paris Opera (1964) and his decorative architectural programme for the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center in New York (1966), are a reflection of his notion of 'total art', and his explorations in the universality of music and its translation into the spatial dimension. Music was a constant source of inspiration to Chagall. The subject of his creations, it provided internal rhythm and strength to his compositions, as well as dictating the intensity and ranges of colour he used. Offering a fresh approach to iconography, Chagall and Music heralds the intersection of audial and visual art as the mark of Chagall's incessant and brilliant modernity

Chagall et la musique by France) Musée de la musique (Paris( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in French and Undetermined and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"De ses débuts à Vitebsk, sa ville natale de Russie blanche, à son arrivée à Paul-de-Vence, la musique est omniprésente dans le parcours de Marc Chagall (1887-1985). Nourrie par son univers familial et par ses racines juives hassidiques, cette sensibilité trouve son expression la plus complète dans des représentations d'archétypes qui correspondent à des figures emblématiques universellement reconnues de l'art de Chagall et dans un voyage plastique à travers des langages parlés et écrits. Les opéras et ballets auxquels il a apporté toute sa créativité et l'art monumental dont il s'est passionnément saisi dès le Théâtre d'art juif (Moscou, 1919-1920), Alefro (Mexico, 1942), L'Oiseau de feu (New York, 1945), Daphnis et Chloé (1958) et La Flûte enchantée (New York, 1967y révèlent les liens tissés par l'artiste entre la musique, la scène: (décors) et le travail de la matière (costumes). Des projets ambitieux tels que le plafond de l'Opéra de Paris (1964) et le programme décoratif et architectural du Metropolitan Opera de New York (1966) témoignent de sa conception d'un art total par l'exploration de l'universalité de la musique et sa représentation dans l'espace. Il poursuit ce travail dans la création de céramiques et de sculptures, par la technique du collage, les grandes compositions peintes, jusqu'aux travaux sur la lumière du vitrail emplissant l'espace des couleurs magiques des sons. Au-delà de ce récit plein d'enseignements et de découvertes, ce projet inédit permet surtout d'interroger l'oeuvre de Chagall pour mettre en évidence, outre sa connaissance intime de l'art musical, des rythmes et des harmonies, des dissonances vibrantes et des compositions lyriques qui sont inscrits au plus profond d'une expérience toute personnelle du monde que l'artiste habite en témoin engagé."--Page 4 of cover

Pénétrer dans la lumière du plein jour" : c'est pour accomplir cette "mystérieuse obligation" qu'après la Seconde Guerre mondiale, Marc Chagall s'adonne, avec un génie enchanteur et visionnaire,à l'art du vitrail.

Marc Chagall : du noir et blanc à la couleur by Marc Chagall( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in French and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celebrated master of color by artists and critics of his time, Marc Chagall is revealed, in this exhibition project devoted to his last years, by his artistic exploration of black and white to a new masterful mastery of colors particularly bright, intense and deep. The beginning of this period coincides with the return of the painter in France from the American exile in 1948 as desired and hoped for. Thanks to a renewed serenity in his "second homeland", Marc Chagall infuses to his vast plastic and monumental design the fruit harvested from the orders made for the stage in Mexico and New York during the war. Always attentive to its time and eager to surprise the expectations of the European public, this new artistic stage feeds on a path that is quite audacious. For the interrogation of color by the exploration of black and white seems to be against the image that the colorist has left for a few decades. However, the dialogue between black and white and color has already been woven at several previous times, from the twenties, when Chagall discovered all the techniques of engraving. However, contrary to the experience of recent years highlighted in the exhibition, the previous dialogues emphasized the need for the exploration of color to understand the depths of blacks. In a large representative selection of about 200 works in various artistic techniques that the artist experiments with curiosity and fervor, the public will discover for the first time the artistic means invested with great freedom through which the vision of the The universe of the painter, draftsman, sculptor, ceramist and engraver is expanding, being built and unfolds towards a palette enriched with colors. Indian ink wash and white marble sculptures will inaugurate this discovery of the visitor to meet the palette of various topics addressed, impregnated by the land of reception. The introduction of colored masses in dialogue with black and white in the space explored allows to accompany the visitor's gaze towards a new understanding of the luminous depth of the monochrome built as well as the shimmering colors that we associate with the Chagall's work from the Mediterranean era
