First edition lithograph poster created for an exhibition of lithographs and engravings at the Berggruen Gallery in Paris in 1967, published by Berggruen, Paris. It was printed on the lithographic presses of Mourlot Freres in Paris, engraved by Charles Sorlier. Chagall's early life left him with a 'powerful visual memory and a pictorial intelligence'. After living in France and experiencing the atmosphere of artistic freedom, his 'vision soared and he created a new reality, one that drew on both his inner and outer worlds.' But it was the images and memories of his early years in Belarus that would sustain his art for more than 70 years.Of circus people he said, 'Why am I so touched by their make-up and grimaces? With them I can move forward toward new horizons. 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.
