Les Chrysanthèmes marries Chagall's most seminal artistic motifs, fantasy and the still-life. He explores these themes by juxtaposing a whimsical winged figure gliding effortlessly across the deep blue sky, above the oversized chrysanthemum blooms. Chagall's paintings had long depicted flowers latent with immense artistic significance. Through the thick, textural application of paint Chagall explores these seductive blossoms. To the artist, abundant, full flowers are synonymous with love, which he felt was the basis of true art. Klaus Perls, one of the early owners of Les Chrysanthèmes, related that "the work was painted in Paris for sale, a fact which explains its flamboyant sureness of touch and the decisive representation of the blooms.

It was the dreamlike quality in Chagall's works that had initially led to the Surrealists approaching the artist and asking him to join their movement. It was this same oneiric sense of whimsy that led Ambroise Vollard to commission two groups of works from Chagall during the period that Les Chrysanthèmes was painted. The first of these were gouaches that he prepared as illustrations for La Fontaine's Fables in 1926, while the following year he executed a large group of works focusing on the theme of the circus.

Marc Chagall (1887 – 1985) was a Russian-French artist. Chagall was considered as pioneer of modern art and one of its greatest figurative painters who invented a visual language that recorded the thrill and terror of the 20th century. For decades, he had been respected as the world's preeminent Jewish artist. "When Matisse dies," Pablo Picasso remarked in the 1950s, "Chagall will be the only painter left who understands what colour really is".
