11: Brush the Great. Magician. lithograph ca. 1920
Brush, Edwin. Brush the Great. Magician. Entertainer. Illusionist. Chicago, Goes Litho., ca. 1920. One-sheet (27 ¾ x 42") color lithographed poster depicting a full-length portrait of Brush, magic wand in hand, standing in front of a Moorish skyline. Chips to borders, light over-coloring and restoration to image, but overall good condition. Linen backed. Brush was one of the most popular Chautauqua and Lyceum entertainers of the 20th century. His initial interest in magic was sparked, while employed as sales manager for Ed E. Strauss & Co., a clothing manufacturing concern based in Chicago. Brush used pocket tricks to help boost sales, and found the practice exceedingly successful. He later turned to magic full time, and built an impressive full-evening show of small magic and illusions perfectly suited to Lyceum courses and Chautaquas. He was the first magician to appear under canvas on a Chautauqua circuit.
