Femme de Cirque

Femme de Cirque, c.1960 by Marc Chagall is an original Lithograph with Pochoir in colors on Arches paper from the signed and numbered edition of 150. Published by Guy Spitzer, Paris with his blindstamp. After a painting by the artist.

The whimsical Femme de Cirque depicts a beautiful, nude acrobat, captured in a private moment of concentration. She arcs her arms above her head, creating a curve that mimics those of her legs and hips. Chagall’s bold hues of red, green, and blue lend a dreamlike quality to this work, and his use of hand-applied pochoir contributes a sense of texture to this work. Circus scenes appear in many of Chagall’s works. For him, acrobats resembled figures in religious paintings and symbolized his disillusionment with Europe.
