Joseph Grimaldi - Clown Ghost?

Are you afraid of ghosts? How about clowns? Well, what about a ghost of a clown? Joseph Grimaldi (1778-1837) is considered the father of today's circus clowns, and his apparition is said to watch performers from the boxes in the Theatre Royal and Sadler's Wells Theatres. This artwork was produced for the author James Clarke and appears in his excellent book 'Haunted London'. You can check out his website here:-
