Grinnell's Art Gallery Shows
Chagall Series of Bible Etchings

The work of artist Marc Cha-
gall is featured at the opening
of Grinnell's new art gallery.
The collection includes 65
hand-colored etchings from the
artist's "Bible Series."
The series, which originally
included 105
pieces, was 25
years in the
making. It is
one of the
most impor-
tant works of
graphic reli-
gious art to
be produced
in modern
All of Chagall's mastery of
the graphic technique and sensi-
tivity of line, form, color and
interpretation are evident in
these pieceS.
Unlike the famous "Jerusa-
lem Windows," the series on
exhibit portrays the human
figure, which Chagall handles
uniquely. Each piece is accom-
panied by the biblical quota-
tion that inspired it.
Chagall proves himself as a
true master of the delicate
etching within this impressive
collection. The work is both
powerful and subtle, explosive
and yet serene. Each individual
piece deserves special attention.
Also of considerable interest
at the gallery is a volume of

dows for - Jerusalem)." This
book contains 131 works show-
ing the development of the fa-
mous windows. The color clar-
ity is magnificent and the book
should not be missed when
viewing the show. All of the
work in the book and the show
is signed by the artist.
The gallery is under the di-
rection of Wynn and Loretta
Ruff of New York and Miami

Congressman Lucien N. Nedzi
of Michigan's First District this
week joined in expressing
shock over the declarations
made in this country by Aron
Vergelis, editor of Sovietische
Heimland, who came here as a
member of the Russian cultural
Vergelis followed the Russian
line of denying the existence of
anti-Semitism in Russia and of
many accusations against the
United States and the Jews.
Rep. Nedzi charged that. Ver-
gelis' statements "fell into the
category of 'when did you stop
beating your wife' utterances."
Congressman Nedzi said:
"While we, in this country,
have a long way to go to com-
pletely eradicate the sin of
anti-Semitism, I think it is fair
to say that government policy is
non-discriminatory. Vergeli s'
nonrefutation of statistics and
other evidence of anti-Semitism
in the Soviet Union clearly tags
him for what he is — a Soviet
propagandist, guise d in the
sheep's clothing of an 'intellec-
tual' poet."
