This book serves as a guide to the iconography of Chagall's work-in which he frequently included Jewish symbolism and folklore, sometimes overtly, sometimes in hidden, quite meaningful ways-offering insight into Chagall's Jewish roots and interpretations of his paintings, from his early masterpiece made in Russia and in Paris to his Yiddish art theater paintings. Harshav illuminates Chagall's most famous paintings of the Jewish shtetl, or provincial Russian town, and highlights the recognizable trademarks of his art, such as the 'fiddler on the roof'. It also interprets Chagall's theater murals and his glass windows at the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem.
