Completed by Marc Chagall (1887-1985) in 1922, this lyrical, evocative, and unique book is a key work to understanding the life and art of this creative genius who has come to be known as the Father of Surrealism."" His deep roots in Jewish tradition-religious and secular-are reflected in these recollections of his poverty-stricken youth in White Russia, to his involvement in the Paris art world prior to World War I, and back again to Russia until his decision in 1923 to finally return to Paris. ""Belongs unmistakably to the world of his paintings...it flickers with sharp responses and vivid phrases.""-New Statesman

My life was written in Moscow in 1921-1922, when Chagall was 35 years old. Although long out- of-print, it remains one of the most extraordinarily inventive and beautifully told of all autobiographies. The text is accompanied by twenty plates which Chagall prepared especially to illustrate his life story. Together, the words and pictures paint an incomparable portrait of one of the greatest painters of this century, and of the now vanished milieu which inspired him.About the Author:
Often called 'the Father of Surrealism', Marc Chagall was born in Witebsk in 1887. He studied art in St Petersburg and went to Paris in 1910. He spent the years from 1914 to 1922 in Russia, becoming Commissar of Arts in Witebsk after the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917. In 1923 he resettled in Paris but following the fall of France he moved to New York. Chagall returned to France in 1948 and remained there until his death in 1985.
