Sacred poem or erotic work, profane song or religious metaphor celebrating the love of God for men, The Song of Songs is a powerful and ambiguous text that, from century to century, continues to fascinate without losing anything of its mystery.

Pierre Boncompain was inspired by the Song of Songs and illustrated some verses, celebrating the love of the couple. The artist was able to highlight the aesthetic essence of this text, combining the religious theme and contemporary art.
