La Figlia di Iorio, 1906 ca
This is an absolutely stunning 10 foot tall poster for an opera in three acts, La Figlia di Iorio. The libretto closely corresponded to D'Annunzio's highly successful play of 1904 about a beautiful witch in Abruzzo who is threatened to death by townspeople. Her lover, of course, tries to help her escape to no avail. De Karolis was a leading turn of the century artist who often worked with D'Annunzio. This is his most grand poster. Extremely rare, in good condition with rich, deep color. A tour de force.
