CIRCUS HORSE  

 

Bronze

 

(21 ½" high x 14" wide x 3 ¼" deep")

 

Shortly after John Ringling discovered Sarasota, Florida, the first circus train

rolled into town, and did so for the next 33 winters. Many other circuses

also made Sarasota their winter home and circus folk became an integral part

of the social and economic life of Sarasota adding to the area’s unique identity.  

 

With his painted bronze CIRCUS HORSE, Frank Colson pays homage to the history

of circus in Sarasota. Tina Christiani, famed bareback equestrienne with

Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey, advised the artist on this enchanting piece,

the first in a series of new bronze sculptures by Frank Colson.
