Marc Chagall is considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century. He used a variety of techniques to express his poetic motifs. When he met the mosaic artist Lino Melano, he decided to have his pictorial vision translated into the medium of mosaic. Since the 1960s, more than 20 mosaics based on Chagall's designs have been created for both private and public clients in Europe, Israel and the United States. The lecture will highlight the close cooperation between the client, the artist and the mosaic workshop by means of several examples.
