When I select circus posters for my shop I look to find those which has something special into it. And I really think this one has it.
The poster looks a lot more like a movie poster for a jolly mid-century comedy but in much with a lot better graphical artwork than most movie posters in that genre. The three clowns "Les Francescos" are really detail-rich, colorful and very expressive. Also the horses in the top over the "Schumann" sign looks like wild, strong and slightly untamed creatures.
A truly stunning circus poster in my opinion!
Circus Schumann was graded as the "Danish National Circus" and was considered as the greatest circus in Scandinavia. However, financial problems and the exhausting Danish circus "war" closed down a lot of circus in Denmark - including Circus Schumann.
This poster is an original advertisement for the famous Circus Schumann which was a German Circus, that fearing World War I moved to Denmark in 1916. Circus Schumann stayed in Denmark until their last season in 1982 when the circus closed down for good.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
