Marc Chagall (1887 – 1985), was a Russian-French artist associated with one of the most successful artistic careers of the 20th century. He was an early modernist and created works in virtually every artistic medium, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints. He created his own mixture and style of modern art based on his idea of Eastern European Jewish folk culture with two basic reputations: as a pioneer of modernism and as a major Jewish artist.

The Grand Palais des Champs-Élysées, commonly known as the Grand Palais (English: Great Palace), is a large historic site, exhibition hall and museum complex located at the Champs-Élyées in the 8th arrondissement of Paris.

Tériade is the nom de plume of Statis (or Efstratios) Eleftheriades (1889-1983) a native of Mytilene who went to Paris in 1915 at the age of eighteen to study law, but who instead became an art critic, patron, and, most significantly, a publisher. From 1937 to 1975 he commissioned various individuals of the pinnacle artists and philosophers such as Picasso, Matisse, René Daumal to produce series of works for his legendary quarterly journal Verve (1937-1960) or the later Grands Livres.
