The Biblical Message: Marc Chagall

New York: Tudor Publishing Company, (1973). First edition. Sm. folio. 199pp. Tan cloth with gold lettering on cover and spine in original dust jacket protected by mylar. "Marc Chagall has always been fascinated by biblical themes and characters, and over the years he has produced a tremendous variety of art work based on both Old Testament and New Testament subjects. Among the most remarkable of these works is a series of large oil paintings and 38 gouaches on Old Testament themes known as The Biblical Message. In these paintings Chagall makes the Bible contemporary by conveying the emotional, psychological, and philosophical essence of the biblical stories being told. This volume provides a comprehensive view of these paintings and the several sculptures, stained-glass windows, a ceramic, a tapestry, and a drawing that the Chagalls donated to the French government for a new museum and cultural center in Nice."
