Oil on canvas painting by artist Louis Bosa. Depicts two figures, one balanced atop the other, as one rides a petite unicycle. Features primarily warm tones with predominant colors of red, blue, white, and orange. Framed in a gilded frame with carved wood detailing along the outer edge and textured cloth running in a strip along the center.


Bosa's paintings, which are primarily oil on canvas, often focus on people and street scenes from his native Italy. The people in his paintings are accessible and seem to portray human emotion and everyday life, conquering such concepts as mortality, humility and sometimes futility. His work often reveals comedy in the midst of tragedy. Many of his paintings include whimsical images of nuns riding bicycles and similar authority figures engaged in mundane activities. Bosa painted for the Works Progress Administration and the Whitney Museum. He taught at the Cleveland Institute of Art, the New York Art Students League, the Parsons School of Design, Syracuse University, and the University of Notre Dame at South Bend, Indiana. His paintings and watercolors are on display at many well-known art studios and museums across the United States
