Elsie on Hassan by Laura Knight, 1929-30 by permission of Nottingham City Museums & Galleries

The Circus has captured the imagination of leading artists for over 200 years. 

This illustrated talk will tell the real story of Miss La La and place Degas' work in the context of artists such as Picasso, Jack Yeats and Dame Laura Knight, whose 1930s Carmo paintings remain an ever loved image of British Circus in the 20th Century.

Featuring images of the performers behind the canvas, this talk will take us into the world of sawdust and spangles captured by two centuries of leading artists.
