1949, 'Circus Performers,' John Grimble
Delightful, 1949, oil on on board by British artist John Grimble, signed and dated.
This atmospheric painting depicts a muscular male and rolled-haired female circus acrobats in blue costumes chatting to a seated performer in tiger print trousers. Lovely use of shadow across the grass and a delicious sliver of pale blue sky.
A rare composition for this 20th Century landscape painter, most of his works depicted Boston, Lincolnshire and the surrounding fenland.
