On the subject of the editor: Editions du Chêne, Paris 1941, it is an occupied Paris which witnesses the emergence, 16, place Vendôme, of the Editions du Chêne.

A risky bet given that its 21-year old founder was called Maurice Kahane, an atheist Jewish man who would then adopt the name of his mother, Girodias. The Chêne specialised itself by the edition of
art books and literature. The Editions du Chêne would become a branch of the Hachette group in 1951. The edition of art books would then adopt pride of place. George Herscher takes over the Hachette
house with enthusiasm in 1971.

Since 2007, under the direction of Fabienne Kriegel, the Editions du Chêne continue to develop in the area of the illustrated book.

Marc Chagall : (1887-1985) born Moïche Zakharovitch Chagalov, is a painter who was born on July the 7th in Liozna, in Bielorussia (then included in the Russian Empire), and naturalised french in 1937. He died on March 28th, 1985 in Saint-Paul de Vence. Chagall is one of the most famous foreign artists who settle in France in the XXth century, along with Pablo Picasso or Joan Miro. Even if his work is not associated to any movement or school, it bears characteristics of Surrealism and neo-primitivism. He also drew his inspiration from jewish tradition, the daily life of the shtetl (jewish village in Eastern Europe) and russian folklore, from which he elaborated his own symbolic. Chagall work with different medium, such as oil on canvas, sculpture, poetry, glass painting, enamels etc. Additionally to the worldwide presence of his works in the biggest collections, one museum is dedicated to him in Nice, and another one in Vitebsk.
