A selection of Chagall's ceramic works-a seldom-studied facet of this beloved artist's oeuvre-is beautifully presented in this fully-illustrated volume.

Marc Chagall (1887-1985) is one of the twentieth century's most accessible and lyrical artists. Chagall's haunting, emotional portrayals of his Jewish heritage, his folkloric images and exuberant use of color have a universal appeal. His distinctive style is also evident in the wide variety of ceramic pieces ranging from painted platters and tiles, to wall ceramics, vases and jugs featured in this book. These illustrate not only stories from the Old Testament but also from fables and folktales. Reproduced in color, these ceramic works have been drawn from a number of private and public collections from around the globe, and are accompanied by brief critical essays and the artist's biography. This informative retrospective fills an important void in the study of Chagall's long and varied career.
