Chagall, Marc

Marc Chagall

It could be argued that Marc Chagall was fortunate for an artist of his time – not only for his prodigious amounts of talent that were bestowed on him, but also for a career that averted and avoided disaster that so beleaguered his fellow modernists.

Chagall was born to a Hasidic Russian family, and whose early interest in art came as a mystery to his conservative parents. His talent however took him to St. Petersburg, where he later developed his characteristic surreal, Fauvist, and some would say Cubist style. He happily mixed his artistic techniques just as he did his artistic style, and was not content to stay within any one school or tradition. This is why we can see his work in such diverse fields as glass painting, book illustration, oil paintings, murals and sketches.

Chagall had a life-long love affair with Paris, and it was there that he associated with Fauvists, Dadaists and the early modernist movement. It was here also that he met the famous art historian and collector Ambrose Vollard, who encouraged Chagall to make art editions of classic books, such as the Bible or folktales. Chagall eventually chose Gogol’s Dead Souls – a poem by the Russian short form writer known for his modernist, absurd, and sarcastic view of human nature. Chagall’s Dead Souls became one his enduring print-work legacy, and is now considered to be some of his finest work.

Chagall’s friendship with Vollard led him to produce other great lithographic works – such as the Fables of French folklorist Jean Le Fontaine, and selections from the Bible. Whilst these works may be beyond the ordinary collectors reach, Chagall’s interest in art prints and book prints means that there are many other works out there which can be found. One good example is the ‘Marc Chagall’s Drawings and Watercolors for the Ballet’ by Tudor Publishing which feature original lithographs made especially for the edition by the artist.

Another very affordable choice for the beginner collector would be ‘Poems of Love’ Dix Milles Aubes Poemes D'Amour with illustrations by Marc Chagall, published by Falaize in 1951. There was only nine hundred of this poetry chapbook ever produced, each numbered, and can be found relatively easily.
