The Juggler by Marc Chagall

The next picture is "The Juggler" by Marc Chagall. A juggler with a double profile, "cubist", greets the audience with his ridiculous hat and a ball at his side makes a turning and stands in the deep blue of the starry night like a full moon.
Another acrobat dives down from the trapeze on a half green and half blue horse and around, as a kind of frame, a myriad of characters surrounds the space in many anecdotes and episodes: strange anthropomorphic and zoomorphic performances on a journey through a dream and nightmare of the distance the background of a landscape, perhaps the prospect of the Seine. Much of childhood returns in the imagination of the artist who grew up in a Jewish family in Vitebsc, a remote Russian village which becomes a creative place of his entire narrative poetry. Childhood memories enliven the shady characters of his paintings: farmers at work, poultry, Gypsy musicians, circus, together with folktales imbue his works with mythological character.
