Barry Leighton Jones "Emmett Kelly as Weary Willie"
Mini lithographic print 22x26cm.
These are high quality mini prints of oil paintings done by the late World Famous Artist Barry Leighton Jones for the Emmett Kelly Circus Collection in 1988 - 1992. Printed by Stanton Arts.
Emmett Kelly was the most widely known and most widely acclaimed clown of our times. During his 50 years in show business, he was seen in circuses, night clubs, television, movies, Broadway musicals, and strangely enough, in opera and on the baseball diamond. Perhaps no other performer in history appeared in so wide a variety of entertainments. Although the face of "Willie" has been much copied, nobody has managed to duplicate the appeal of the original. This painting was completed in 1986.
