Bolognesi was an artist with a fairy sensibility, classified in an almost hasty way within the great Naive artistic movement. In reality, he always tried to express directly what he felt, covering the world with an expression of fairytale intimacy that invents a small theater of magical characters. In this work, the real theme is the awkward and gentle movement of each of the acrobats, painted as though in an ancient vase in a race of light brown horses. An empty circus decorated with surreal geometries encircles the work, synthesizing every element of the stage. The wide eyes of the steeds meet the fixed gaze of the grotesque beauties immobilized forever in a ritual gesture.
