and the acrobats
a bronze by Bruce Krebs.

versions :

Toulouse-Lautrec observes the scene with a little fear...
The carrying woman blows extremely. She is cambered to divide, with flexibility, all the weight of the flutter girl.

the flutter girl is lighter, younger too. She seeks its balance. She finds it. She smiles...

Their four hands are firmly anchoraged, the ones with the others.

That holds good, what a pleasure!

I imagined this scene when I rediscovered that Toulouse-Lautrec had made very many drawings of acrobats.

Because of his small size, I thought that he idealized, more than us still, the force and the beauty of these circus athletes...

From a technical point of view, the painter has also a function of tripod. It is thanks to him that the sculpture holds upright.
