DescriptionTony Sgroi - "Circus Boy Under the Big Top" Book Cover Original Art (Whitman, 1957). If you didn't have the guts to run away and join the circus as a kid, NBC's primetime television program,"Circus Boy" was the next best thing. This late-50s half-hour mixture of comedy and drama, gave twelve-year-old orphan Corky (played by future Monkee Micky Dolenz) a chance to live out every kid's dream. And he didn't even have to run away from home to do it, since the circus actually was his home! This hand-painted image was created for the wraparound cover of Circus Boy Under the Big Top, which was written by Dorothea Snow, and painted by Tony Sgroi in sumptuous watercolor on heavy illustration board. The title type is hand-painted on a separate acetate overlay, and included with the art. The art has an image area of 20.5" x 14", and the condition is Excellent.
