The State Museum of the Republic of San Marino, in Palazzo Pergami, hosts the exhibit Chagall, the Dream and the Sign – From the Bible to Vervè, with a rich series of the artist’s works from the 1980s (runs till September 8).  
The pieces on display are predominantly etchings and lithographs of Chagall’s illustrations for the Bible - commissioned by historic vendor and editor Ambroise Vollard (later handed over to editors Triade after Vollard’s death). 

Joining the exhibition in San Marino are a number of pages that are by-now somewhat disintegrated, but that were realized for famed magazines such as XX SiecleDerriere le Miroir and Vervè. At the time, these art journals were directed by mythic personalities from the art world, e.g. Teriade, Maegt and Gualtieri di San Lazzaro - not only art dealers and editors, but themselves friends of the 20th-Century’s greatest artists.
