An early modernist, he was associated with several major artistic styles and created works in a wide range of artistic formats, including painting, drawings, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic tapestries and fine art prints. Art critic Robert Hughes referred to Chagall as "the quintessential Jewish artist of the twentieth century" (though Chagall saw his work as "not the dream of one people but of all humanity"). For decades, he "had also been respected as the world's pre-eminent Jewish artist". Using the medium of stained glass, he produced windows for the cathedrals of Reims and Metz, windows for the UN and the Art Institute of Chicago and the Jerusalem Windows in Israel. He also did large-scale paintings, including part of the ceiling of the Paris Opéra. He had two basic reputations: as a pioneer of modernism and as a major Jewish artist. He experienced modernism's "golden age" in Paris, where "he synthesized the art forms of Cubism, Symbolism, and Fauvism, and the influence of Fauvism gave rise to Surrealism". Yet throughout these phases of his style "he remained most emphatically a Jewish artist, whose work was one long dreamy reverie of life in his native village of Vitebsk." In 1960, he began creating stained glass windows for the synagogue of Hebrew University's Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem. Leymarie writes that "in order to illuminate the synagogue both spiritually and physically", it was decided that the twelve windows, representing the twelve tribes of Israel, were to be filled with stained glass. Chagall envisaged the synagogue as "a crown offered to the Jewish Queen", and the windows as "jewels of translucent fire", she writes. Chagall then devoted the next two years to the task, and upon completion in 1961 the windows were exhibited in Paris and then the Museum of Modern Art in New York. They were installed permanently in Jerusalem in February 1962. Each of the twelve windows is approximately 11 feet high and 8 feet (2.4 m) wide, much larger than anything he had done before. Cogniat considers them to be "his greatest work in the field of stained glass". In 1973 Israel released a 12-stamp set with images of the stained-glass windows. The windows symbolize the twelve tribes of Israel who were blessed by Jacob and Moses in the verses which conclude Genesis and Deuteronomy. In those books, notes Leymarie, "The dying Moses repeated Jacob's solemn act and, in a somewhat different order, also blessed the twelve tribes of Israel who were about to enter the land of Canaan. In the synagogue, where the windows are distributed in the same way, the tribes form a symbolic guard of honor around the tabernacle." Leymarie describes the physical and spiritual significance of the windows: The essence of the Jerusalem Windows lies in color, in Chagall's magical ability to animate material and transform it into light. Words do not have the power to describ. Seller Inventory # 79558

About this Item: Monte Carlo André Sauret, 1962. First edition, in French; folio (33.5 x 25 cm); introduction and notes by Jean Leymarie; two original lithographs prepared for this work by Chagall and numerous chromolithographs; inscribed by Chagall and Charles Sorlier to Robert Iweins, 1962 - 1963; grey cloth boards and dust jacket in excellent condition. Inscribed by Marc Chagall and his collaborator and 'master printmaker' Charles sorlier. In 1960, Marc Chagall was asked by the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem to create twelve designs in stained glass for its new synagogue. Inspired by his lifelong study of the Bible, Chagall realised these designs on the theme of Moses' blessing of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. As a result of Judaism's injunction against depicting human beings, the works instead feature animals, flowers, trees and Jewish symbols. Each window design is dominated by a specific colour, contains a blessing. Many considered these windows Chagall's crowning achievement, and the artist himself confessed: 'They have completely transformed my vision, they gave me a great shock, made me reflect. I don't know how I shall paint from now on, but I believe something is taking place.' In 1961, prior to their installation in the synagogue, the twelve windows were exhibited in the Louvre and New York's MoMA, where they had the greatest success. The official dedication ceremony of the newly decorated synagogue took place on 6 February 1962. The present work contains Chagall's sketches and studies for the windows. The colourful lithographs offer an insight into the making of these exceptional works of art and provide the Biblical quotations they were designed to illustrate. Cramer 49. Seller Inventory # 99221
