Blue Circus Reproduction

This print is an authentic hand silkscreen (serigraph) reproduction of Chagall’s work. Hand silk-screening produces colors which are much more vivid that the usual machine made mass-produced art prints. A screen made of fabric is stretched on a frame; a different screen is used for each color in the print (sometimes as many as eight screens). The screen is then cut like a stencil so that the ink will penetrate through to the paper to produce the color image. A craftsman registers the paper, pulls down the screen and with a brush pushes the ink through he screen onto the paper. The Paper is then allowed to dry and is run through the process again for each color until the entire picture is reproduced.

Image size: 14″ x 11″

Liberated by the fragmented, airborne world of the Cubists – a style characterized by the breaking up of objects into wedges or facets- this 20th century master was one of the first to explore the fantastic realm of symbols and memory images which foreshadowed other artist’s attempts to investigate subconscious experience. His style moved from the tight, angular structure of Cubism to an airy world of softened and fluid relationships of color, sharp and space symbolized in his childhood recollections and paintings based on Yiddish folklore.
