An odd addition to the Dancers, “Circus” is another study in movement and performance. By the way paint is applied to the canvas and because of the warm palette, we can see that it is akin to the first paintings of the series, although the theme somewhat differs. Regardless, the acrobatic skills of the clowns are as equally inspiring as the ballerinas to the artist, while she uses their bodies to break apart and tie in the composition. Scene setting is what separates this work from the rest of the ballerina paintings. Although this is an abstract composition, we can recognize the “Circus“, the only concrete association to the physical space in the series.
