The dustwrapper has slight rubbing at the top of the front fold over, and there is the original bookseller's rubber stamp neatly hidden underneath of the front fold over flap, on the front paste down. In the author's discussion of Chagall's development as an artist, he deals at length with the events and circumstances which have influenced it, and he also examines the many styles of art forms encompassed by Chagall's long career, including his set designs for the Jewish theatre in Moscow and for the Ballet Theatre in New York, His Distant but Fertile Connection with Fauvism and, Cubism and Surrealism, his stained-glass windows for the synagogue in Jerusalem and his later work in lithography, wood engraving, ceramics and sculpture. Throughout this book the author speaks of Chagall as a poet -- a poet whose great poems on canvas shine with what Chagall himself calls the "light of freedom" and the "colour of love". -- front fold over blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
