My Life with Chagall book. Virginia Haggard gelang zweifelsohne eine interessant zu lesende Schilderung der sieben gemeinsamen Jahre mit Marc Chagall. Mich erfüllten hierbei insbesondere die Erklärung der Arbeitsweise Chagalls, ohne zu tief ins Technische abzudriften. Interessant fand ich außerdem seinen Bezug zu seinen Bildern und was er mit ihnen ausdrücken wollte.

Over there the painter met Virginia Haggard McNeill, with whom he had an affair. This revived his desire to paint and imbued his brush with a fresh vivacity, visible in his work Cow with Parasol.

Russian: Вирджиния Макнилл-Хаггард. Though Chagall would do several important public works in the United States-sets and costumes for a 1942 American Ballet Theatre production of Tchaikovsky’sAleko and a 1945 version of Stravinsky’s Firebird, and later large murals for Lincoln Center and stained-glass windows for the United Nations headquarters and the Art Institute of Chicago-he remained ambivalent about America. I know I must live in France, but I don’t want to cut myself off from America, he once said. France is a picture already painted. America still has to be painted. Maybe that’s why I feel freer there.

This woman writer lived with Chagall and lived some very interesting experiences with the great artist. Later they split up but there is no recrimination on her part. She tells a good. simple story and if you are curious about some of the intimate details of this artist's life, this is a good read
How often do we get the inside scoop on a great artist? He is one of my favorites so I was fascinated by the author's assessment of his character, talent and their day-to-day lives. You may think he had only one child (by Bella, his beloved wife and muse) but he had a little boy (David) with his mistress, who is virtually NEVER mentioned. Chagall's art was just about perfect, he, however, was not. If you are interested in this specific slice of his very long life, this is a must read. Interesting all the way through.
Chagall and Haggard were my neighbors in High Falls, New York. This book, by Virginia, provides rare coverage of that time.
The writing is poetic. Fascinating read.
Virginia Haggard is bitter. She was dumped by Chagall after birthing him a son,and was shunned by his artist friends. This is her account of those time with,and after, Chagall. Poorly edited,it comes off like a pissed-off ex-employee ratting on the boss because someone didn't get a raise.It becomes a slog of a read, nothing like the superior Jackie Wullschlager's"Chagall". In some ways, her rants are understandable. Chagall was a cheapskate. A momma's boy. He was petty and mean. She runs off with another man eventually,and skims over that as if it is perfectly understandable, and then is aghast when she is roundly shunned by the Chagallites. The worst of the many Chagall books, and that is sad, for there's a story here to be had, just not written by her.
