Summary

Chagall loved blue. 
“The blue of the sky which ceaselessly combats the clouds which pass, which pass…” (Baudelaire). 
Marc Chagall’s journey began in his native Russia and concluded with his Parisian triumph, the extraordinary ceiling of the Paris Opera House, commissioned by André Malraux. 
On the way, he embraced the spirit of the twentieth century without ever disowning his Jewish-Russian origins. 
This work follows the path of the artist through his early works, his discovery of the United States and his passion for France. 
Marc Chagall, unaffiliated with any movement but influenced by his encounters with Bakst, Matisse and Picasso, remains, undeniably, the painter of poetry.

    A music historian uncovers Nazi Germany’s use of Mozart as a WWII propaganda tool in this “intriguing study [that] comprehends a range of vital topics” (Choice).   As the Nazi war machine expanded its bloody ambitions across Europe, the Third Reich sought to promote a sophisticated and even humanitarian image of German culture through the tireless promotion of Mozart’s music. In this revelatory book, Erik Levi draws on World War II era articles, diaries, speeches, and other archival materials to provide a new understanding of how the Nazis shamelessly manipulated Mozart for their own political advantage.  Mozart and the Nazis also explores the continued Jewish veneration of the composer during this period while also highlighting some of the disturbing legacies that resulted from the Nazi appropriation of his work. Enhanced by rare contemporary illustrations, Mozart and the Nazis is a fascinating addition to the study of music history, World War II propaganda, and twentieth century politics.
