There is no record that the painter Marc Chagall (1887–1985) and the storyteller Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904–1991) ever met, yet the connections between them are profound. Both moved to the West and absorbed Western influences, yet their art remained rooted in the Jewish shtetls of their native Russia (Chagall) and Poland (Singer). Illustrated with 19 colour plates, this perceptive and illuminating study demonstrates how both artists melded magic and realism in a joyous triumph over persecution.
