Different Types of Clowns

There are three basic types of clowns:

Classic Whiteface, demonstrated by Frosty Little
Auguste clown - Leon McBryde (Buttons)
Tramp clown - Emmett Kelly Sr. - painting by Jim Howle
The Whiteface clown is the oldest and most well-known of the clownsThe Auguste  clown is the least intelligent, and zaniest of the clownsThe character clown is most commonly represented by the Sad Tramp or Happy Hobo

Special thanks to Jim Howle, for the graphics of the clowns found on these pages.
