Oil painting on canvas, circa 1985. Probably about 48″ x 56″.
I think I painted this at 204 Grand Street studio, after my solo show in the East Village but before I moved to Roebling and Metropolitan.

 I remember being fascinated with clown hats at this time. This was related to a book I was reading on kitsch, and the historical development of cheap, low aesthetic objects in Nazi Germany. This led, later on, to a whole series of god awful clown and dog paintings, which thankfully have been lost forever!
