I am Marc Chagall

Landmann, Bimba. 2006. I am Marc Chagall. Eerdmans Books for Young Readers.

I enjoy Marc Chagall's work and I enjoyed this picture book biography for older readers. Written as a pseudo first-person account, the book details the life and work and travels of Marc Chagall. He interprets his work through the context of his life as a Jewish artists amidst the backdrop of two world wars.

The illustrations are photographs of 3-dimensional artistic representations of Chagall's life and his work. The use of color is effusive and uplifting. A celebratory look at Chagall. Timeline included.
