Guy de Lasteyrie du Saillant, a descendant of the chapel’s builders, was so fond of Chagall’s works that he ordered this 6 panel masterpiece. The panels were created between1978 and 1982 by stained-glass artists Charles Marq and Brigitte Simon in Reims. They interpreted models that Chagall had created in perfect harmony with this sober, modest chapel. Chagall himself carried out the finishing touches, namely the numerous grisaille effects.
