What lightness and grace in this acrobatic feat! The stride of the horse, with its dewlap in the wind, makes the movement graceful while the bride, flying in the air like an angel, emerges in an unreal blue under the artist's coloured pigments. It is an incredible mix of two singular universes...

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 has selected this painting by Alfons Alt for the poetry it emanates and all the stories that emanate from it
