Marc Chagall’s Daphnis and Chloe was commissioned by Teriade in 1956 to illustrate the ancient pastoral romance of Daphnis and Chloe. Chagall spent the next five years of his life, from 1956-1961, creating 42 color lithographs to visually narrate this classic tale. Marc Chagall’s Daphnis and Chloe coincides with Chagall’s second marriage to Valentina (Vava) Brodsky at a time of new beginnings and new romance for Chagall. On the newlyweds’ honeymoon to Greece, where they visited Delphi, Athens, and Poros, Chagall gathered inspiration for this series of color lithographs.
