The Jerusalem windows by Marc Chagall( Book )

56 editions published between 1958 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lower-priced edition of the original book published by Braziller in 1962. The volume explains as well as illustrates the story of the creation of the windows
Daphnis and Chloe by Longo( Book )

46 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in English and German and held by 983 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 )

19 editions published in 2003 in 3 languages and held by 979 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 : painting as poetry by Ingo F Walther( Book )

41 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 888 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 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 752 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 by Jacob Baal-Teshuva( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in 5 languages and held by 713 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 his times : a documentary narrative by Benjamin Harshav( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a new and comprehensive biography of one of the most prominent artists of the twentieth century in dialogue with the events and ideologies of his time. It encompasses the 98 years of Chagall's life (1887-1985) in Russia, France, the US, as well as Germany and Israel, his deep roots in folk culture, his personal relationships and loves, his involvement with the art of the Russian Revolution, with Surrealism, Communism, Zionism, Yiddish literature and the state of Israel. The book exposes the complex relationships between Chagall's three cultural identities: Jewish-Russian-French. Indeed, 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. The book reveals Chagall's endless curiosity, his forays in many directions beyond painting and drawing: public art, theater and ballet, stained glass windows in churches and synagogues, lithographs, etchings, and illustrations of literature and the Bible. We observe the intricate relations between Chagall's life and consciousness and the impact of his life on the iconography of his art. Thus, the book provides an indispensable key to the understanding of Chagall's often enigmatic art. Indeed, it is a contribution to the understanding of some of the central problems of Modern art, such as the question of 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. Renowned Israeli-American scholar Benjamin Harshav presents the first comprehensive investigation of Marc Chagall's life and consciousness after the classic 1961 biography by Chagall's son-in-law Franz Meyer. Harshav's narrative 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

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

9 editions published in 1990 in 3 languages 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
