More Musings on Jean-Louis Clerc
I had been watching this painting over on ebay it is very unusual in that the signature is in the style of Jean-Louis Clerc's. Even the date was in the right era. (1949) The subject matter and the style of the painting is also very similar to the way Clerc rendered his horses in many of the scarf pieces. The subject matter gets more intriguing as it depicts Circus horses of a famous "Swiss" circus. I did bid on the piece and was out bid. Which is Ok with me, after all I would have had to look for wall space. I felt through out the whole process that the discovery of what just might be a painting by him to be reward enough. I will never be able to confirm, so the mystery remains intact.
