This whimsical piece depicts a beautiful, nude acrobat, captured in a private moment of concentration. The voluptuous acrobat appears as the epitome of femininity as she balances upon the back of a bucking goat. She gracefully arcs her arms above her head, creating a curve that mimics those of her legs and hips. Her pale, white form is smooth and flawless and appears almost luminescent when contrasted with the vibrantly colored background. The acrobat closes her eyes, focusing upon her craft, and appears in control of her motions despite the unstable surface upon which she is perched. Chagall’s bold hues of red, green, and blue lend a dreamlike quality to this work, and his use of hand- applied pochoir contributes a sense of texture to this remarkable print.
