    Description

    Circus Poster (Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey, 1930s). Poster (41" X 79"). Miscellaneous.
    Arthur Trostl "Arturo the Great" traveled with Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey from 1935-1941 displaying his many tight rope feats for his solo trapeze act. Artoru was born in Vienna, Austria and claimed he was the fifth generation of a family of tight rope walkers and had an early ambition of crossing the Niagara gorge on a tight rope. One of Arturo's acrobatic acts is wonderfully displayed on this poster. An unrestored poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as slight fold separation and fold wear, pinholes, or very minor tears. Light staining. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. The poster was originally printed in two sections, which have since been attached with adhesive. Beautiful stone litho artwork. Folded, Very Fine-.
