The famed publisher Fernand Mourlot considered the Daphnis and Chloé suite by Chagall to be “the most important graphic works that Marc Chagall has created thus far (1961).” Written over 2,000 years ago, Daphnis and Chloé is an ancient Greek romance novel and the only known work of the mysterious writer Longus, who lived during the 2nd century C.E. The book tells a story of a boy (Daphnis) and a girl (Chloé), each of whom is abandoned at birth. Orphans are raised by separate, neighboring farmers, each of whom raises the children as their own. Daphnis and Chloé each grow up working on their individual farms and together as neighbors for their new families. Soon, they fall in love and are young and naïve, and they do not understand what is happening to them or how to handle their first love and the politics involved with it. Many trials and tribulations come their way throughout the novel, including being separated. Eventually, however, they reunite, get married and live their pastoral lives together in the country.
