• The series "Daphnis and Chloé" is still the greatest testimony to Chagall's graphic mastery.
• From 1959 to 1961 Marc Chagall illustrated the ancient, bucolic tale of Daphnis and Chloé by Longus for Tériade.
• The bucolic of the literary model is ingeniosuly transferred to Chagall's pictorial language which empasizes the text's pastoral and magical appeal
