Description:

American School, 20th Century

Advertising Poster: Mummenschanz is not part of the King Tut exhibit!
Unsigned, with information from the Bijou Theatre (New York) l.c. Color lithograph on paper, 81 1/2 x 41 1/2 in., joined, unmatted, unframed. Condition: Creases, scattered abrasions, sheet is in two separate sections, joined and mounted to a linen support.
Estimate $100-150

It appears that the original format for the poster had the reviews and Bijou Theatre name and address at the top. This advertising section was cut off and then reattached at the bottom, beneath of the image of the dancer, the two sections then mounted to a linen backing. The traveling King Tut exhibition was in New York in 1987-79, suggesting a date for the poster in the late 1970s.
