"We see here the uniting of two circus dynasties: the Schumanns and the Rivels. Gotthold Schumann was a leading horse trainer; while his son Albert worked in Berlin, his younger son Max established the circus in Denmark. The Rivel brothers gained fame in the 1920s with a variety of European circuses and eventually performed separately. The most famous was Charlie. Antoni beautifully captures the mastery of this clown, and this design has been widely used by other circuses who have employed Rivel since then. Antoni made close to 200 posters in his too-brief lifetime; this poster he loved the most of all—a feeling we can all share with him" (Circus Posters, p. 15).
