Marc Chagall: The Lost Jewish World by Benjamin Harshav
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the first book to focus on Chagall's Jewish roots. Chagall is one of the most popular artists of the 20th Century, with work in every major museum in the world. The book includes 200 illustrations, many from the little-known Russian theatre works, that have rarely been published before. The Russian-born French painter Marc Chagall is recognized as one of the most significant painters and graphic artists of the 20th century. This new book, "Marc Chagall and the Lost Jewish World", is the first book on Chagall, to illustrate succinct interpretations of Chagall's world and iconography, and the nature of his art in the midst of Modernism. Chagall scholar Benjamin Harshav unearths new interpretations of the Jewish and biblical symbols in his work. The book includes works from the Russian theater, and those that were done during his early and late career in France.
