      The Cirque Fernando is a captivating 1879 painting by French impressionist Edgar Degas.  This reproduction show Miss La La the acrobat suspended from the rafters of the circus dome by a rope clenched between her teeth at the Cirque Fernando in Paris. Unlike other circus paintings at the time Degas's focus was not on the action within the ring or the crowd's reactions, it was on the viewer's perspective, seeing the spectacle as the audience would have done, gazing up at the daring feat taking place above. The Cirque Fernando is simply stunning, employing a predominantly burnt orange colour palette with the majestic allure of the acrobat Miss La La combine to create a statement art print worthy of a special place in a contemporary or vintage inspired interior decor.

The Artist


Edgar Degas (1834 – 1917) was a highly celebrated French impressionist artist of the 19th century famous for his pastel drawings and oil paintings of ballerinas, Degas helped shape the fine art landscape throughout modern art history. 

Edgar Degas studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and became renowned as a portraitist, fusing Impressionistic sensibilities with traditional approaches. Degas enjoyed capturing female dancers - as movement and the human form was his artistic playground, Degas showcased the contrasting awkward humility of the dancer backstage with her majestic grace in the midst of performance. His work influenced several major modern artists, including Pablo Picasso. 

One thing remains undeniable about Degas: His art was among the most painstakingly polished and refined paintings in history.
