About the Art

Marc Chagall was a pioneer for Jewish artists, he had a distinct style of painting dream like scenes of personal history and European folklore. He was a painter, printmaker, book illustrator, and he even made stained glass windows. He began experimenting with Cubism in 1910 when he moved to Paris and his style is considered a mixture of Cubism, Fauvism, and Symbolism. His supernatural subjects are also thought to have significantly influenced surrealism.

Depicted is a crowd watching some acrobats at the circus. The piece is very vivid and colorful, but Chagall’s skillful use of white in this piece makes the acrobats the main focal point. Chagall was very inspired by the circus and would watch the travelling performers often when he was a child and throughout most of his life.
