Mourlot 314. Cramer Livres 46. From an edition of 270 copies. On wove paper by Arches (without watermark) with centerfold. 42 x 64 cm (16,5 x 25,1 in), the full sheet.
Sheet 7 of 42 from the series "Daphnis und Chloé". Printed by Mourlot Frères, Paris. Published by Tériade, Édition VERVE, Paris 1961. [DB].

The comprehensive series "Daphnis and Chloé", published by Verve in Paris in 1961, may well be considered one of the main works of Marc Chagall's graphic creation. The bucolica of the literary model is ingeniously transferred to a pictorial language by Chagall, this way he emphasizes the text's pastoral-fairy tale character
