Daphnis and Chloe is a pastoral elegy attributed to the Greek poet Longus, dating from the second century A.D. 

Chagall had always been delighted with the tale, which analyzed the simple, mutual passion of two abandoned children who are protected by nymphs and the god Pan. When it was suggested to Chagall by Tériade (1956), the famed Parisian publisher, that he illustrate the fable of Daphnis and Chloe, Chagall began his preparation for the project by making two trips to Greece. While visiting Athens, Delphi, Olympia, Nauplis and Poros, Chagall executed a number of preliminary sketches and gouaches for the series. Falling in love with Greece--its landscape, history and climate--deeply influenced his choice of color and form for the Daphnis and Chloe lithographs. >
