What is the Captivating Circus Box?
We all love a good circus… whatever our age. The thrill of the Big Top – what we call the mobile tent where circuses perform around the country – stays with us for life. Many great modern artists, from Renoir and Degas to Picasso and Matisse, have felt moved to depict the circus in their work. It was an incredible visual spectacle. All those tumblers, trapeze artists and clowns in bright costumes offered painters a rich, ready-made subject full of drama, colour and whirling motion.

• A booklet introducing the theme, with information about artists, art styles and techniques.
