The Clown 1961
Oil on Canvas
The Clown' (1961) was given to Kalman as a wedding present by Lowry and features the most peculiar clown expression.
Lowry's clown looks particularly sad, with his eyes pointing upwards and his lips pulling downwards in a huge frown. Even the triangles on his cheeks face downwards! The powerful colours of the white face and big red lips contrast wonderfully against the pale green background.
