André Malraux, France's Minister of Culture wanted something unique for the Ceiling of the Paris Opera and decided Chagall would be the ideal artist. The images Chagall painted on the canvas paid tribute to the composers Mozart, Wagner, Mussorgsky, Berlioz and Ravel, as well as to famous actors and dancers. After the new ceiling was unveiled, "even the bitterest opponents of the commission seemed to fall silent". This book exemplifies the wonderful color and imagery that Chagall can offer.
