Presentation of Marc Chagall's mosaic Le Message d'Ulysse, by Jean-Baptiste Delorme, curator at the Marc Chagall national Museum, Nice.

 


In 1965, Louis Trotabas, Dean of the Faculty of Law and Economic Sciences of Nice, invited Marc Chagall to create a mosaic mural for the large reception hall of the Faculty under construction. Inspired by the reading of Gabriel Audisio's essay, Ulysse ou l'intelligence (1946), the Dean suggested that Marc Chagall work on the theme of The Odyssey.
Around the central figure of Ulysses, the scenes follow one another from left to right of the mosaic in two registers. In the upper register: "the Assembly of the gods on Olympus", "Calypso", "Polyphemus", "Circe" and "the Sirens", then in the lower register: "Nausicaa", "The Arch", "The Wedding Bed" and "The Death of Ulysses".
The Message of Ulysses, executed by the mosaicist Lino Melano, is thought by Marc Chagall as a counterpoint to the painted cycle The Biblical Message for which the museum was then created in Nice. The artist wishes to inspire students with a spirit of adventure, combined with intelligence and wisdom.

At the Faculty of Law and Political Science - Université Côte d'Azur
avenue du Doyen Louis Trotabas - Nice
