Walt Kuhn‘s Clown with a Black Wig presents the viewer with a very serious-looking clown. The Met, where you can see this work, really wants us to juxtapose the frivolity of the circus with the severity of his emotion. Yes, why thank you, the Met.

Really, the only thing that comes to mind for this image is Joe Pesci in Good Fellas.
