Marc Chagall, as other famous artists of the twentieth century, has worked in various genres of the visual arts, but no one has launched the monumental art of stained glass like Chagall.
Windows in the United Nations Headquarters; Pocantino Hills, NY; the Art Institute, Chicago; Metz; Saarburg; Mainz; Reims; Jerusalem; Nice; and Zurich are highlighted here, along with documentation of the enormous preparatory work and the various stages of designing and colouring the windows. This extraordinarily illustrated book, edited by Chagall's granddaughter Meret Meyer, is a triumph of beauty and technique, showing the many details of windows and all the preparatory drawing to help the reader understand the big picture.
It is a book to savour and treasure.
