A poet of images, Chagalls career spanned much of the twentieth century, beginning in his native Russia and continuing in France and the United States. His bright color palette and picturesque compositions still make him one of the most beloved artists of our time, and he is the subject of a major traveling retrospective exhibition in 2003. The Portable Chagall covers all periods of his work and provides what is rarely seen in other books on the artist--an easily accessible yet comprehensive overview of his entire oeuvre. Introducing the images is an insightful essay by celebrated art critic Robert Hughes. A great value, The Portable Chagall provides an essential resource for students as well as for all art lovers.
