A canvas that, at first glance, slightly surprises and takes the hell out of the fact that you don’t know what exactly here can or should be said. The strange and unnatural figure of the acrobat causes bewilderment and rejection. But then, when the first negative emotions begin to dissipate, you begin to understand what this canvas is about.
The figure is really strange and clearly captured during the work of the acrobat: either somersault, or some kind of somersault ...
It is unclear just what he wanted to tell us with this, one might say, portrait, Picasso. And if you can’t understand it, then you need to turn on the imagination or fantasy, or both at once ...
But if you imagine that this is not an acrobat, but a simple person whom fate has broken. From all the hardships, problems and troubles, he broke down and turned into nothing or something incomprehensible. And as a result, we are faced with the tragedy of man. And given that it was written in 1930, one can imagine what exactly the artist wanted to say with this canvas.
In Europe, there was a breakdown of nations; in the air, something clearly dangerous and unpleasant was felt. Slowly, something negative was brewing, and Picasso, by the way, was very loyal to Soviet Russia. For some time he was sure that the same thing could happen in Europe, but later he would understand how he was right in portraying an acrobat in this ridiculous pose. Later in 1939 the Second World War will begin. And this is breaking, breaking entire nations, this is a new turn of history that did not bode well. Years later, Picasso is precisely why he will speak of the painting as a canvas with a sad beginning.
But fantasy can lead to another solution: he just wanted to portray what it would be like to be an acrobat in a circus and how difficult it should be. And this, by the way, will also be true, since Europeans adhere to this particular version when retelling the canvas.
