The cover of this record includes a reproduction of Marc Chagall's 1956 etching Solomon on His Throne. Chagall was an appropriate choice for the cover of this album. Both Bloch and Ben-Haim are Jewish, as was Chagall, who was known for his religious paintings, stained glass windows and etchings.Solomon on His Throne is also an appropriate choice for the cover, as "Solomon" is the English transliteration of "Schelomo". Chagall (1887-1985, born Mark Zakharovich Shagal in Vitebsk, Belorussia, Russian Empire, now Belarus) considered one of the most original and eminent figures in 20th century art, is particularly well-known for his stained glass windows. Best known for the Jerusalem Windows and Peace for the United Nations (1964), his last monumental work in the medium was stained glass windows for chapel of Le Saillant in Corrèze. In 1914, Chagall first exhibited two of his works, Self-Portrait with Seven Fingers and The Fiddler, at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris. In June of that year, he had his first one-man show at the Galerie Der Sturm in Berlin. Chagall then traveled to Vitebsk, his hometown, intending to stay for a short visit, but the outbreak of WWI prevented him from returning to Paris, where he would later settle. Chagall created his first stained glass windows (for the church of Le Plateau d'Assy in Haute-Savoie) in 1957. Chagall was influenced by Cubism, Fauvism and Surrealism. His works, executed in a wide variety of media, from oils to stained glass, often featured subjects drawn from Russian village life, Jewish folklore and Hasidic mysticism. Lightly toned and creased. Upper right corner is missing. Rounded and worn corners. Light impressions on front cover. Light impressions from record on front cover (not visible head-on). Record is in fine condition.
