Abstract
Some routine follow-up revealed that there is also a hard-bound version of this book, which I have had for some time in paperback form. In fact, the paperback was a second edition from 1995, the year of publication, while this third edition is from 2004. As I wrote of the paperback, here is a beautiful 144-page catalogue prepared for the great showing of the forty-three located gouaches done by Marc Chagall. See, under 1997, my comments on Marc Chagall: The Fables of La Fontaine. Those comments give something of the history of these gouaches and mention this exhibit. Now I have found the book published to catalogue the exhibit. The reproductions of Chagall's work here are exquisite! Each is paired with and faces its La Fontaine text. There is a T of C of the gouaches on 142. At the front of the book, following a short preface by Joséphine Matamoros and Sylvie Forestier, are two essays: Les gouaches de Chagall pour les Fables jugées par la critique des années 1920-30 and Chagall illustrateur des Fables de La Fontaine ou Comment quitter la Russie et devenir français. The exhibits were held at the Musée d'Art Moderne in Céret from October 28, 1995 until January 8, 1996 and at the Musée National Message Biblique Marc Chagall in Nice from January 13 until March 25, 1996.
