Born into near poverty in Russia in 1887, the son of a Jewish herring merchant, Chagall fled the repressive ‘potato-colored’ tsarist empire in 1911 for Paris. There he worked alongside Modigliani and Léger in the tumbledown tenement called La Ruche, where ‘one either died or came out famous’. But turmoil lay ahead – war and revolution; a period as an improbable artistic commissar in the young Soviet Union; a difficult existence in Weimar Germany, occupied France, and eventually the United States. Throughout, as Jackie Wullschlager makes plain in this groundbreaking biography, he never ceased giving form on canvas to his dreams, longings, and memories.
