EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the essence of Polly's Clown, a haunting and enigmatic painting by Everett Shinn from 1946. The clown, with his ragged costume and eerie expression, stands in the darkness like a figure from a nightmare. His bird-like features add to the surreal quality of the image, evoking a sense of strangeness and mystery. Shinn's skillful use of oil on canvasboard brings out the intricate details of the clown's outfit, from his tattered jacket to his whimsical hat. The artist's signature style is evident in every brushstroke, creating a dreamlike atmosphere that draws viewers into a world of fantasy and illusion. The clown's pose, with hands on hips and an intense gaze directed at the camera, adds to the portrait-style quality of the painting. It is as if he is performing for an unseen audience, inviting us to enter his strange and otherworldly realm. This striking image is not just a representation of a character but also an exploration of themes such as dreams, nightmares, and identity. It challenges our perceptions and invites us to delve deeper into its layers of meaning. Polly's Clown is truly a masterpiece that showcases Shinn's talent as an American artist and leaves a lasting impression on all who behold it.
