Author: Chagall, Marc
The celebrated artist Marc Chagall began illustrating the Bible in 1931, and it became his lifelong passion. This extraordinary volume includes more than 130 pages of his finest works, paired with three books from the Old Testament. Chagall's illustrations reflect his Jewish heritage and his view of the complex relationship between God and man, presaging many of the subjects and themes in his later work. Originally published in France, the extensively illustrated, chunky, hand-sized book is a delightful combination of the popular artist's evocative style alongside the most familiar stories from the Bible.
