Chagall about the circus: “For me, a circus is a magical spectacle, a passing and dissolving like a little world. There is a disquieting circus, a circus of hidden depths. These clowns, riders, acrobats are imprinted on my sight. Why? Why am I so touched by their makeup and grimaces? With them I can move toward new horizons. Their colours and their painted masks draw me toward other, strange, psychic forms which I long to paint… 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.”
