This photo is awful but it is the best I could manage. I love old posters. This oil painting measures 5' x 4'. I plan to paint more circus scenes when I get to France. I saw a wonderful circus poster, that was once plastered on the kiosks in Paris advertising the arrival of the circus and the location of the great tent, in a small shop near the Seine. I saw that poster in the early 70s.....wonder if the poster and shop still exists. Many artists created advertisement posters for kiosks and theaters including Jules Chéret, Toulouse-Lautrec and Théophile Alexandre Steinlen.
