Framed Vintage Circus Art

The sights and sounds of the circus are in and of themselves great works of art. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the bold colors, dizzying feats, supernatural prowess, and appeal to whimsical fantasy that define circus entertainment would translate so well as pieces of art when framed vintage circus posters are put on display. What once were advertisements seeking to draw crowds to a vacation for the senses become fun, stylized pieces of decor and aesthetic appreciation when revisited as works of art.

One of the most famous circus acts of all time, the travelling partnership of Barnum and Bailey, yields framed vintage circus posters from as far back as 1896. “Trapeze Artists, Barnum and Bailey, 1896” showcases one of their signature features, the death-defying artistry of trapeze gymnasts, in a colorful banner that proclaims their circus the “world’s largest, grandest, best entertainment institution.” Whether true or not, it certainly looks convincing!
Another captivating framed vintage circus poster features an iconic and mysterious figure known as Alexander the Crystal Seer, a vaudeville magician who made the rounds with circuses frequently and dazzled crowds with his apparent abilities of divination. His gaunt visage hovers intriguingly over a dark background, gazing out over his crystal ball and inviting the viewer to look inside—if they dare.

Not only popular in their own right, circuses became a popular subject of media in the late 1800s to the early 1900s. A particularly memorable film by the Marx brothers entitled “At the Circus” yielded an equally memorable poster, with cartoonish renderings of the famed comic trio peeping over a colorful ad with a circus strongwoman and bold, “big top” inspired print.
