Street Acrobats

Street Acrobats (aka Pavement Scene and Composition in Water-colour), 1923
Pencil and watercolour, 28.5 cm x 20.5 cm

Although dated as c.1913–15 in the Maclean Gallery 1980 catalogue (which incorrectly suggests that it could be a study for Overbacks 1915), this is actually a study for Street Acrobats in the King's College collection, which is signed and dated as 1923, and the finished watercolour is consistent with Robert's angular style of the early 1920s.
