Overview

The Fables of La Fontaine by Koren G. Christofides

Never before seen in the United States, Marc Chagall's illustrations bring the best-known fables of La Fontaine to life in a new way. Chagall's voluminous range of color and imaginative execution illuminate this beautiful gift edition that includes over forty stunning full-color illustrations from what many consider his greatest period. The vibrant gouache reproductions are paired with a wonderful verse translation preserving the charm and spirit of La Fontaine's legendary text. With several essays by leading art critics setting the illustrations in historical context, this volume is perfect for both the aficionado and those being introduced to Chagall and the fables for the first time.
