"Circus Is in Town," Superb Social Realist Painting by Anne Walker, 1930s

About

Bringing exuberance and vivid color to its depiction of small town life, this painting depicts the circus big top on the edge of town, with a wagon to one side, a pair of elephants waiting for their moment and two children rushing toward the action. The painting is by Anne Walker, a Maryland artist who was part of the Snallygaster School of painters mentored by Charles Walther. Walther was well-known for attracting the attention and support of Alfred Barr at MoMA, Duncan Phillips and the Cone sisters. (Dimensions include frame.).
