The Big Circus


Marc Chagall


Mediums: oil, canvas.
Location: Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Russia.

The work immerses you in the tense atmosphere inherent in dangerous circus performances. Very bright colours, a large number of artists, the public and other characters give the canvas a great diversity. The riot of colour nuances, the overabundance of details, the fuzziness of the outlines do not allow the viewer to quickly turn away from the picture – with every minute he discovers new elements of the plot that he did not immediately notice, because the circus left the arena. The celebration continues in the audience and the sky.
