What a circus

The Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota is returning to its roots in November when it unveils a set of four newly-conserved circus banners designed around 100 years ago by the Belgian artist Frank De Vos. The pieces, which were used in circus advertising campaigns, were heavily used and in poor condition when the collector Howard Tibbals bought them in 1989 (because of the wear and tear, few like them still exist today). A museum conservation team led by Barbara Ramsay spent seven years (2005-12) working on the banners, which will be unveiled to the public on 7 November.
