These three look great! This goat, majestic with his gravity-defying horns, seems solemn with his large cape on his shoulders. At the top of the canvas, he dominates, assured and immobile on the least stable thing on earth: two horses side by side. The horses contrast with their white coats, and are inclined to honour their most unusual rider.
Alfons Alt accompanied the troupe of Bartabas, the founder of the equestrian theatre Zingaro, during their show "La cabaret de l'exil". The meeting of these two worlds plunges us into a dreamlike world populated by animals, nature and mythology. Alfons Alt walks on the borders of painting, photography and engraving by a process invented in the middle of the 19th century that he has updated and named "Altotype". By combining these processes, he takes us into a singular pigmented universe and gives us the opportunity to see unique creations. He says it himself: "It is exactly there that I situate myself between the reality of photography and the dream world of painting with the sensuality of the material.
Retour De Voyage particularly likes the energy of this painting, both for the subject and for its luminosity despite the dominant presence of black.
