'Here is my soul. Look for me here; here I am, here are my pictures, my roots'
Marc Chagall, one of the twentieth century's most popular artists, grew up in a close-knit, bustling Russian-Jewish community, the son of a herring seller. In his colourful, dreamlike autobiography, written as he was about to leave his homeland for good in 1922, he vividly brings to life the memories and places that fed into his unique work, from his shtetl childhood to revolutionary Russia and Belle Èpoque Paris.
Filled with Chagall's own evocative illustrations, My Life is as warm, joyful and humane as his art.
