What a physical performance on this picture! It doesn't seem to be hard for the horse to carry his rider who is doing the circus on his back... The latter defies gravity thanks to his incredibly strong abdominal muscles...

Alfons Alt accompanied Bartabas' troupe, the founder of the Zingaro equestrian theatre, 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 for its exhibition Les Chevaux font leur cirque!
