Circus 1975 19.5 x 12.5″ graphite on paper This series was done in France, in Beausoleil, a small town just above Monaco, in the studio of Roger Favarel. I stayed in a hotel in Monaco for 4 months beginning in the Fall of 1976. During that time, the circus came to Monaco, a one ring circus in a big tent. I drew constantly while watching the performances and later created this slightly mad world of acrobats and fat horses.
