Circus Girl Resting
Circus Girl Resting Yasuo Kuniyoshi, 1924
As I mentioned in my last post, Japanese-American artist Yasuo Kuniyoshi did a lot of pictures of circus women. In contrast to the last post, this work focuses on the woman's body -- in relation to fruit and repose - instead of on a relationship between mother and son. If you look up Kuniyoshi's work, you should find some more active poses as well.
