The Circus by Brian Wildsmith

The Circus by Brian Wildsmith, originally uploaded by Tiny tin.

ANOTHER vintage illustration...this work reminds me slightly of the wonderful and epic series of paintings by Feliks Topolski of the 1953 coronation celebrations of Queen Lizzy the Second!
The colour, perspective and sheer exuberance of this image is fantastic - circuses are not so politically correct these days but as a source of inspiration for artists, they come second to none.
