Went to see a Chagall exhibition today; i never knew he illustrated books. As well as Gogol's Les Ames Mortes, he has illustrated La Fontaine's stories (in a rather dark way too!).
The exhibition was very inspiring, along with his ink line drawings, these were i think my favorite:
His use of dirty, smudgy black with locational vibrant colours is fantastic, and who would think this style would be so perfect for children's illustration...
The following weren't in the exhibition, but i came across them while looking into Chagall more, and they're so beautiful i thought i should share!
“Le Lion s'eu allaut eu guerre”
Chagall's ceiling at the Paris Opera House
And now back to my to do list -> smudge is good, smudge is friend, smudge things a little!!! :)
