More About this Item

Description: Cleveland: The Otis Lithograph Co., ca. 1922. Three-sheet poster depicts a winged devil, back to the viewer, which dominates the poster, its balance filled with bust portraits of Dante gazing at other demons, animals, and imps, with portraits of Kellar and Thurston in the upper right and left corners. 40 ½ x 78 ½". Minor abrasions, closed tears, and losses restored; B. Uncommon. The posters produced for Dante that describe him as “Europe’s Magician” were produced just after he returned to the stage under the auspices of Howard Thurston. The Otis Lithograph Co. produced nearly all of Thurston’s posters, and as such, printed Dante’s with a similar look and design.
