Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Completed by Marc Chagall (1887-1985) in 1922, this lyrical, evocative, and unique book is a key work to understanding the life and art of this creative genius who has come) to be known as the "Father of Surrealism." His deep roots in Jewish tradition--religious and secular--are reflected in these recollections of his poverty-stricken youth in White Russia, to his involvement in the Paris art world prior to World War I, and back again to Russia until his decision in 1923 to finally return to Paris.

Synopsis:

Marc Chagall's strange autobiographical essay on his early life, a unique document in twentieth century literature.
