Jack B Yeats The Circus Poster 1912 antique print.
This print is part of a larger set that where published after a set of drawings that Yeats did looking at life in the West of Ireland. It is believed these where done on trips back to Ireland at that time. The prints where published by Maunsel and Co in Dublin with Yeats himself being the author. Very rare set of prints. There was just 8 colour prints in the set. This print is what’s known as a tipped in plate where the top part is affixed to the backing and the bottom part of the print is unattached.
The print, is 6 by 4 inches and has been mounted & framed in a modern gold frame giving an overall external dimension of 15 by 13 inches.
The print is in very good condition for it’s age, backing paper has small spots of foxing commensurate with age, please see pictures.
