The screenprint depicts a Roman charioteer against a yellow/brown background to depict the circus, where The crowd appear as simplified, amorphous shapes. There are four horses in the foreground (the standard number for a chariot team) that appear as dark silhouettes, pulling the chariot containing a pair of figures. Blurred images, clouds and repetition of forms create a sense of movement, while the white highlights, created by cutting into the paper, help to define the form
