Marc Chagall | Le Cirque series


Marc Chagall🎨: "For me a circus is a magic show that appears and disappears like a world.
A circus is disturbing. It is profound These clowns, bareback riders and acrobats have themselves at home in my visions.
Why? Why am I so touched by their make-up and their grimaces?
With them I can move toward new horizons. Lured by their colors and make-up, I can dream of painting new psychic distortions. It is a magic word, circus, a timeless dancing game where tears and smiles, the play of arms and legs take the form of a great art"!

Pablo Neruda | If your eyes / Se non fosse per i tuoi occhi..

John Singer Sargent | Two Girls with Parasols at Fladbury, 1889

If your eyes were not the color of the moon,
of a day full of clay, and work, and fire,
if even held-in you did not move in agile grace like the air,
if you were not an amber week,

not the yellow moment
when autumn climbs up through the vines;
if you were not that bread the fragrant moon
kneads, sprinkling its flour across the sky,

Marc Chagall | Expressionist /Cubist painter | Quotes

  • Mine alone is the country of my soul.
  • When I am finishing a picture, I hold some God-made object up to it - a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand - as a final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there's a clash between the two, it's bad art.
  • Color is vibration like music; everything is vibration.
  • The freer the soul, the more abstract painting becomes.
  • I am out to introduce a psychic shock into my painting, one that is always motivated by pictorial reasoning: that is to say, a fourth dimension.

Marc Chagall | Quotes / Aforismi ⁽³⁾

  • I am working in Paris. I cannot for a single day get the thought out of my head that there probably exists something essential, some immutable reality, and now that I have lost everything else (thank God, it gets lost all on its own) I am trying to preserve this and, what is more, not to be content. In a word: I am working.
  • I adore the theater and I am a painter. I think the two are made for a marriage of love. I will give all my soul to prove this once more.
