Highlights of the Münchner Stadtmuseum

"Arabella, the Legless Lady – Alive and Well!"

The fairground painter Frits Hilbert produced this poster of the well-known illusion in which mirrors make the bottom half of a woman "disappear". This trick is still mesmerizing visitors to Gaby Reutlinger's illusion show at Munich's annual Oktoberfest. The poster was shown in the Museum's exhibition "Das Oktoberfest 1810-2010" and included in the exhibition's catalog.
