Marc Chagall - part 6


Marc Zakharovich Chagall (born Moishe Zakharovich Shagalov 1887 - 1985) was a Russian-French artist of Belarusian Jewish origin. An early modernist, he was associated with several major artistic styles and created works in virtually every artistic format, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints.

For more biographical information see part 1, and for earlier works see parts 1 - 5 also.

This is part 6 of a major 28-part series on the works of Marc Chagall:

1923-25 The Wandering Jew

1923-27 Les Âmes mortes (Dead Souls):

These scenes of life in Russia were still fresh in Chagall's mind in 1923, when he began the etchings for Nikolai Gogol's novel “Les Âmes mortes,” the classic Russian text that was to be his first book collaboration with the renowned publisher Ambroise Vollard. A notorious perfectionist, Vollard left twenty-five unfinished projects at the time of his death in 1939, including “Les Âmes mortes.” The volume was later completed in 1948 by Tériade, another of the great twentieth-century publishers of illustrated books.
