Information about the artwork

In the beginning of 1950s, when Chagall returned to France, the editor Teriade commissioned Chagall to provide a series of illustrations to the Greek fable "Daphnis and Chloe" by Longus. This is one of few fully survived antique stories, written in beautiful rythmical prose, which was popular in Modern times as a dream about happy childhood of mankind, that antique epoch seemed to many. On the lithograph the scene from the novel is depicted where Dorcon who is in love with Chloe, pretends to be a wolf to scare her and after to come to rescue and get an earned kiss. But Chloe's curious dogs expose him.
