ACEO Clown Portrait #149 is a homage to "Coco"  Nicolai Poliakoff from Riga, Latvia (1923 -2009) .  He was a professional circus clown for nearly 80 years. COCO is a third generation Russian circus clown, who achieved his fame in England where the family came while he was a youth.  He was associated wit the Bertam Mills and Billy Smart Circuses in England, which later included tours of Europe. He came to the U.S. in 1953 to work for a limited time with the Mills Brothers Circus, before returning to England. COCO later joined Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus 8 years.  He developed several classic clown routines.
