Princess and the Dead Clown

Ink on handmade paper


This is an illustration based on a drawing by Olga Rozanova. I’ve become really interested in Russian paintings of the early 20th century. I found this image in a book I couldn’t read, because it was in Russian. But it was almost better that way: it left me focussing on the emotion the image contained. I love the dream of the sad clown that is, just as he was about to die, caressed by the only person that could possible care.
