The Circus in European paintings
From Itinerant street performers to the circus ...
The circus and its artists have inspired painters for nearly two centuries ...
previously, the acrobats and other characters of the Commedia dell'Arte
and
even before them, fairground entertainers and other hucksters ...
Before the 19th century ...
a street magician entertaining a crowd ...
the conjurer performs a simple trick,
a basket on his belt contains an owl,
a rich merchant looks amazed and spits a frog,
a pickpocket, the magician’s accomplice,
steals the merchant’s purse
the spectators watch spellbound,
eager to understand the tricks of the magician
Hieronymus Bosch, Jérôme Bosch, attribuée à, follower of
The Conjurer
L'escamoteur ou Le bonimenteur
1502

The Vachalcade was a Montmartre festival with processions and a themed float parade, intended to create an assistance fund for artists living in poverty. Its name came from a contraction of the words "vache" and "cavalcade", in reference to the traditional fat ox festival on the third Thursday in Lent.

  • 55. Discharged from the transient brightness of the arena, the procession of illusionists wanders across the dark field under a stormy sky … A pale young violinist with lost eyes and a face like a tragic mask, looks across at us; he stares at us steadily, bending his ear toward his girl companion, who accompanies his violin tune with the darker tone of the flute.
