Le Cirque is a print portfolio of 38 prints completed by Marc Chagall in 1968. For Marc Chagall, the circus stage was the ideal setting for the dreamlike, extraordinary acts ever-present in his art. In Le Cirque, he summoned the spectacle of the circus experience in all its colorful variety – clowns, acrobats and women riding bareback, stands brimming with onlookers – as a vivid metaphor for the sometimes precarious artist-lifestyle he had decided to lead. With time, the circus came to lie at the very heart of his personal mythology and became symbolic of the human condition.
