"Marc often painted animals doing things that people do. This seemed normal to Marc because he grew up listening to lots of Russian folk stories and fairy tales in which animals were humanlike."
This biography introduces Chagall in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author’s premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists’ works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Chagall, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages each. Ages 4 and up.
