The clown in this vintage poster is the classic pantomime character Pierrot, who pines for the affection of Columbine, the female figure also depicted here. The comedic love story has roots in 16th-century Italian theatre performance, but also became popular in England when it developed into an updated version in the 1800s and became a classic. The bottom of the poster is left blank so that show times and other information can be printed or written onto the poster.
