Known for his elegant presentation of magic, Karl Germain (born Charles Mattmueller, American, 1878-1959) was a star of both the Lyceum and Chautauqua circuits. Considered a highly innovative performer, his stage career was ended prematurely by blindness in 1916. This dramatic poster measures more than six feet in height, advertising Germain’s “spirit cabinet” illusions.
