Gustav Daniel Budkowski, Polish

The Line for the Women's Restroom at Halftime at the Circus Maximus, 1878

Oil on canvas


  1. This is actually by Gustav Daniel Budkowski. As the comments explain, the signature (to the left of the little girl's back leg) is fake (not by either artist). Since selling for £95,200 in 2004 (, it has at least twice been put up for sale, listing the correct artist (first description includes the detail about the signature), for a much lower price. Not sure if either sale was successful.
