Library Journal Review

Doschka has prepared this exhibition catalog in conjunction with shows at the Stadthalle in Balingen, Germany, and the Salle Saint-George in Liège, Belgium. The main essay nicely describes the "poet-painter," as Chagall is sometimes labeled, and his work, tracing his movement from a small village in White Russia called Vitebsk through his travels in St. Petersburg, Paris, Israel, and New York. Complementary essays are included. Chagall was part of a movement away from the traditional art world toward a more innovative style encompassing symbolist magic, folk-art naïveté, and rhythmic line and color. Despite the turbulent times in which he lived, he managed to illuminate the basic events and emotions of life in a transcendent and uplifting fashion. The catalog has a chronological arrangement of nicely reproduced works from Chagall's estate and various private collections, a comprehensive biography with photographs, and a select bibliography. This good, basic introduction to the artist is suitable for public libraries.‘Nadine Dalton Speidel, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., Parma, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
