The Triptych of the Circus Girls

The image above is part of a trio of circus girls that form the painting below by John Coombes. I particularly like this one though.

“On the left we have the Young Apprentice, on the right we have the Visiting Dancer and in the middle there stands the Daughter of the Owner, born and bred into the ring, with sawdust under her fingernails and between her toes.” – John Coombes, Artist
