The Circus Blog Post #2

The Circus by Georges Seurat in 1890-1891

     This painting was made from oil on canvas in Amsterdam and I chose this because of what this image is portraying. The color scheme dominates the canvas in general and this image shows that its very entertaining to work at a circus and they have the audiences full attention. This was made in a Neo-Impressionist style and the performers look like they are granted respect from the crowd also. The Circus captures the emotion and movement of one portion of a performance.The focal point of this painting is the young woman who is riding the white horse and their barely is a use for lighting because it takes place in the evening so its naturally dark.
