The set of original lithographs “Daphnis & Chloe” is considered to be one of Chagall’s most important graphic works among his enormous artistic heritage. Chagall created these exquisite, colorful illustrations in the 1950s soon after his second marriage. Marc Chagall's illustrations to the pastoral tale, which is set on the island of Lesbos, were inspired by his firsthand experience in Greece.
After Bella's death, trying to proceed with his work, Chagall began to create his first color lithographs “Four Tales from The Arabian Nights”. From the 1001 stories in “The Arabian Nights” Chagall chose just four which deal with the themes of lost love, reunion and death:
- The Ebony Horse,
- Julnar the Sea-Born and her Son King Badr Basim of Persia,
- Abdullah the Fisherman and Abdullah the Merman,
- Kamar Al-Zaman and the Jeweller’s Wife.
Chagall's “Four Tales from The Arabian Nights” are considered to be the finest examples of the color lithography created in the United States before 1950. He was honored in 1948 by being awarded the graphic prize at the Venice Biennale.
