Description: "The Circus With The Yellow Clown" by Marc Chagall, 1967 Unsigned Lithograph. Paper size is 34 x 22 inches, with an image size of 26.5 x 20.5 inches. The Lithograph is from an edition size of 2000 and is not framed. The condition was rated B: Very Good Condition, with signs of handling or age. Additional details: First edition lithograph Poster created for an exhibition of lithographs and engravings at the Berggruen Gallery in Paris. Published by Berggruen, Paris. Number 50 in ‘Chagall's Posters - A Cataloque Raisonne', Sorlier, 1975. Mounted on linen. Chagall's early life left him with a "powerful visual memory and a pictorial intelligence". After living in France and experiencing the atmosphere of artistic freedom, his "vision soared and he created a new reality, one that drew on both his inner and outer worlds." But it was the images and memories of his early years in Belarus that would sustain his art for more than 70 years. Of circus people he said, "Why am I so touched by their make-up and grimaces? With them I can move forward toward new horizons. Chaplin seeks to do in film what I am trying to do in my paintings. He is perhaps the only artist today I could get along with without having to say a single word."
