Narrated slide show with biography & work analysis

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This documentary presents hundreds of works by the artist. It is a narrated slide show. The commentary is very detailed, competent, and comprehensive. It includes extensive biography mixed with a very professional painting analysis encompassing influence of other artists with examples of their works. The quality of video and sound is good."
Dull Work on an Unusual Painter
Jeffery Mingo | Homewood, IL USA | 03/14/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)
"This work teaches the viewer about the anti-Semitic discrimination that Chagall and his family faced in Russia. It speaks of how his work differed from the surreal art of Western Europe. It even proved that no all of his work, especially earlier productions, were surreal.
Still, this was a somewhat dull art lecture just put on a DVD. I think high school art students would not pay attention to it if their teachers spent a class period showing it. Most viewers will not want to sit through slide after slide and hear babble after babble. This may only be for hardcore Chagall fans or those who want to learn more about a potential idol."
