At the invitation of his Greek-born publisher Tériade, the artist undertook two trips to Greece in 1952 and again in 1954, from which several projects resulted. Inspired by reading Daphnis et Chloé by Longus and Homer's Odyssey, Chagall's works took various forms.

From illustrated books to a monumental mosaic for the Faculty of Law of Nice, by way of the sets and costumes for the Daphnis et Chloé ballet for the Paris Opera, the master from Vence navigated and appropriated these classics of Mediterranean culture, the exhibition of which is an opportunity to offer a renewed perspective.
