Barron’s introduces another fine title to the highly-acclaimed Anholt’s Artists Books for Children series. Here, award-winning author and illustrator Laurence Anholt reviews the life of Marc Chagall.
Through the stories that he tells his beloved twin grandchildren, Chagall relates his extraordinary rags to riches journey from a topsy-turvy cottage life in Russia, through the dark years of the war, emerging in the sparkling sunlight of Southern France.
Anholt’s fine illustrations appear on every page and include reproductions of Chagall’s work. Once again, Laurence Anholt inspires and informs in this much-loved art history series, which has sold more than one million copies around the world.
