Vintage Mid-Century Modern 1958 Oil Painting Listed Artist Charlotte E. Mollan
Titled: "The Tightrope Acrobat"
Whimsical painting of a clown on a tightrope. The form of the figure is loose and
rendered very openly over a bold, impasto gradient of colors.
The clown is holding an umbrella and darting across the tightrope.
Overall, this painting is very well executed and FUN.
This piece is signed, dated, and includes original artist
label on the backside with title.
