Found at a recent estate sale, this work portrays the image of Pierrot, a
stock character of pantomime and Commedia dell'Arte, whose origins date to
the late 17th Century.
Usually projected as a "sad clown", pining over the
lost love of Columbine, Pierrot is a figure often portrayed in art as the
alter-ego of the artist. Information on the background of the artist Allison
Katzman is not currently available.
