Marc Chagall, 1887-1985 by Jacob Baal-Teshuva( Book )

14 editions published in 1998 in 5 languages and held by 745 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world of 20th-century Paris and its inner circle of literary and artistic innovators, Marc Chagall (1887-1985) superseded nature through metaphor.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 1887-1985 by Jacob Baal-Teshuva( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in 4 languages and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marc Chagall, who died in 1985 at the age of 97, is regarded as one of the greatest artist in modern art. He used his great talent to create a unique world full of magic, poetry, enchantment and fantasy. His use of intense, glowing colours conjured up memories of his childhood and youth in Vitebsk, in today's Belarus. Rich in mythological and symbolic references, his paintings were influenced by Byzantine and Russian icons and folk art and often depicts couples floating blissfully through the air, seeming to defy the laws of gravity. The poetry and biblical inspiration of his paintings have always appealed to a broad public and his works are popular amongst collectors all over the world. Chagall continued, in his paintings, to invoke his birthplace of Vitebsk, with its strong Jewish traditions, customs and everyday life, even long after he moved to Paris permanently in 1923. Picasso once said: 'Since the death of Matisse, Chagall has been the only artist to really understand the true nature of colour. His oil paintings are really painted, not just put together... no artist since Renoir has had such a feeling for light as Chagall.' Chagall's best paintings, gouaches, water-colours, graphic works, sculptures, pottery, mosaics and tapestries, together with his works for the theatre, opera and ballet, are reproduced in full colour in this book. Written by a friend of Chagall, it presents several unpublished works for the first time." -- Amazon.com
