Chagall and the Orient of the spirit - Waldemar-George

FRENCH LANGUAGE

In this essay from the 1960s, Waldemar-George opposes an idealistic view of Chagall's work. He emphasizes the extent to which the urban sites painted by Chagall are, in his view, faithful representations of certain districts of Vitebsk, the painter's birthplace. All his art lies in a blend of fiction and reality, reflecting his observation of the world and life. In addition, the art critic emphasizes the context of synagogal art and Jewish folklore as well as the biblical origin of Marc Chagall's inspiration.
From Vitebsk to Vence via Paris and New York, WaldemarGeorge's essay, Chagall and the Orient of the Spirit, gives a sharp and original reading of Marc Chagall's entire career, in almost exclusive resonance with his Jewish soul and popular sources. To which Chagall would have objected. As the rights to reproduce the paintings were not granted, Waldemar-George's essay never saw the light of day.
