Promotional poster for the play La Damnation de Faust, by Raoul Gunsbourg, inspired by the version for Opera by Hector Berlioz.
La Damnation de Faust, is a work for soloists, choirs and orchestra by the French composer Hector Berlioz. Inspired by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's first Faust and subtitled "Dramatic legend in four parts", it was premiered in Paris, at the Opéra-Comique in 1846. The libretto is a free adaptation, by Almire Gandonnière and Berlioz lui - even from Goethe's play as translated by Gérard de Nerval in 1828. The plan is similar, but the cutting and the overall perspective differ considerably from the original. Just as Goethe had taken hold of Christopher Marlowe's Faust, Berlioz took hold of Goethe's and made of it a sort of musical self-portrait.
Edmond Vernier known under the pseudonym of Georges Dola, born in Dôle on November 2, 1872 and died on July 9, 1950 in Bricquebec, is a French painter, famous for his posters. Member of the Society of French Artists and of the Union of Designer Artists, Officer of Public Instruction, he obtained an honorable mention at the Salon of French Artists in 1909.
We owe him many posters for the theater but also portraits of artists and landscapes.
A professor at the Cercle international des arts, he also illustrated sheet music covers in collaboration with Jacques Wély under the collective pseudonym of Madola.
