A great artist emerges

bookcover
Author: Eric Kimmel

This great book shows the obstacles that Marc Chagall overcame to become an artist. This is a kid's book about Marc figuring out that he was gifted. This quote, from Marc, was inspiring: "We all need art to show us what is truly important in the world. We need art to show us the small, secret things that we never take time to see. We need art to show us how to live, how to be alive in the world."
