Marc Chagall:Au Cirque, Le Poney
Au Cirque, Le Poney, 1968
Etching on Vellum
Edition of 90, Signed
22.3 x 16.9 cm (8 3/4 x 6 5/8 in)

A recurring theme in Marc Chagall’s work, the circus scene depicted in 'Au cirque, Le Poney' can be linked to works present in major collections around the world, such as 'The Dance and the Circus' and 'The Blue Circus' both at the Tate.

The etching on vellum displays Chagall’s figurative style in its purest form. Coming from Chagall’s second permanence in France, this piece is descriptive of Chagall’s interest in circus performances, which, although dating back to the 1910s, found its apex in the 1960s.

Adopting unusual perspectives, Chagall evokes images of moving figures in an imaginary space.Indeed, the lack of a canonical order evokes a dream-like state.
