'Here is my soul. Look for me here; here I am, here are mypictures, my roots'
Marc Chagall, one of the twentieth century's most popularartists, grew up in a close-knit, bustling Russian-Jewish community, the son ofa herring seller. In his colourful, dreamlike autobiography, written as he wasabout to leave his homeland for good in 1922, he vividly brings to life thememories and places that fed into his unique work, from his shtetl childhood torevolutionary Russia and Belle Èpoque Paris. Filled with Chagall's own evocativeillustrations, My Life is as warm,joyful and humane as his art.
'Chagall writes as whimsically as he paints: lovingly ofother people, humorously and lovingly of himself' Daily Mail
'Anyone who likes Chagall's paintings will enjoy this book:the work of an unteachable, unspoiled folk artist' Evening Standard
