Why We Love This

A color etching by Picasso depicting a family of "saltimbanques," or itinerant circus performers. Although the theme of the circus performer has a long history in art, it enjoyed a resurgence in late 19th-century France. Picasso focused on this subject from late 1904 to early 1906, perhaps inspired by a circus in Montmartre that he attended often. Regarded as social outsiders, circus performers were an apt allegory for the avant-garde artists of Picasso's circle. This work is set in a handsome black frame with gold trim.
