This is an Art Nouveau period French advertising poster for the opera Antar. This poster features a large image illustrating a scene from the opera, showing a triumphant knight on a horse standing on large rock. Surrounding him to the front and sides is a dully colored rocky landscape, and on the left side of this landscape is a glimpse of a battle scene. Above and behind him the sun touches the mountains creating vibrant colors of oranges, pinks, and greens, which creates a dynamic contrast with the bright, blue sky in the background. This stone lithograph was created by M.G. Rochegrosse.
Antar, a historic play in four acts, with music by Gabriel Dupont, ran from 1912 through 1914 at the Theatre National de L'Opera, Paris. It was written by the French-Lebanese writer and journalist, Chekri Ganem, about Antarah Ibn Shaddād al-'Absī, a pre-Islamic Arab hero and poet. Ganem spent most of his life in exile, as he was a vehement advocate of the independence of Lebanon from the Ottoman Empire.
This poster was printed by Maquet Gr. PARIS, 1921.
