De uitgeverij Taschen heeft naam gemaakt met het uitgeven van mooi uitgevoerde kunstboeken tegen relatief lage prijzen. Dit mooi uitgevoerde boek over de Russisch-Joodse kunstenaar Marc Chagall is in 2008 opnieuw uitgegeven naar aanleiding van het 25 jarig bestaan van Taschen.
Los van de vraag wat je van Chagall vindt is het een mooi boek vol met mooi uitgevoerde illustraties. Zelf vind ik van Chagall zijn glas in loodramen het mooiste werk.
Een mooi boek voor in de boekenkast, vooral als je fan bent van Chagall. ( )

Book description
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 20th 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. This art album presents Chagall's work.

No doubt one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, Marc Chagall (1887-1985) created a unique world full of pathos, poetry, humor, and enchantment, drawing on vivid memories of his Jewish upbringing in Russia. His original style and his connection to the past endured throughout his seven-decade career, despite the great movements and schools of 20th century art which he saw developing around him. All aspects of Chagall's work are covered here, from paintings to stained glass, tapestries, ceramics, and more.Paintings.… (more)
