ORIG 1923 FRENCH POSTER LE HULLA PERSIAN COLORS+DETAIL!
Price: $1125.00
I just bought this poster in France, and I think part of the reason was that I was captivated by the colors and the way the image is laid out ... in mirroring the typical Persian/Middle Eastern (particularly Turkish) miniatures, the artist Peske, has created a masterpiece. Done in 1923 for a (comic) opera called Le Hulla, Peske uses subdued colors rather than the bright tones which were seen everywhere in Paris during the early Art Deco period. The full title of this opera is actually Le Hulla de Samarkand - referencing Sarmarkand, the (now Uzbekistani) city of the Silk Road. Wikipedia (my fav source!) tells us that ''Samarkand is one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world, prospering from its location on the trade route between China and the Mediterranean (Silk Road). At times Samarkand has been one of the greatest cities of Central Asia.'' As for the opera, it was often sung by Auguste Charles Paul Friant, a tenor of whom it was written '' ...it is with the greatest purity of vocalism that he sings his role... he interprets the music ... with the greatest ardor, never seeking the [easy] effect. Measuring 47 x 31 inches, in excellent A condition, mounted on linen, this poster is lovely. We will be happy to send additional photographs or information should you desire same. Please note that all of our pochoirs, prints and posters are vintage, non- reproduction, original pieces. Please e-mail with any questions or requests for additional information or photographs.
