Item description for Marc Chagall: What Colour Is Paradise? (Adventures in Art) by Marc Chagall...

Explores Chagall's art and life through photographs, paintings, and writings by and about the artist.

Publishers Description
Marc Chagall loved to listen to the scriptures being read out loud. When he was four years old he started to learn Hebrew at his religion classes and on the Sabbath he would go to the synagogue. Many years later the painter saw for himself the places described in the scriptures when he travelled to the Palestine - the Holy Land - with his wife, Bella, and their daughter Ida. For Chagall, God was to be found in all people and things and so he mixed the stories in the scriptures with the everyday world which we can see around us - just like he mixed the colours on his palette. What Colour is Paradise is an imaginatively written book for children, which takes a close look at a number of Chagall's fascinating paintings including The Creation of Mankind, Paradise and Noah's Arch.

Reviews - What do customers think about Marc Chagall: What Colour Is Paradise? (Adventures in Art)?

Wonderful introduction for older children  Feb 1, 2001
Marc Chagall's paintings are beautiful and intricate, and this book attempts to deliver both reproductions of his paintings and an abbreviated biography. There are a few photographs scattered throughout as well, mostly of Chagall's family. I would warn readers, however, that even though the book is listed as suitable for children ages 4-8, a 4-year-old is not likely to enjoy this book, except perhaps as a free-form discussion tool. The narrative is too dense (short as it is) to hold such a young child's attention. My daughter, 4, is very bright and social, but she still couldn't look at the book with me in a conventional way. Instead we talked about what we saw in the pictures and how the colors blended together and created a mood, sometimes sad, sometimes happy. The book is worth purchasing for an older child, however, and I would recommend it for children at least age 6 and up. It is rather thin, but is filled with wonderful things.
