||Linen backed turn of the century original vintage poster Operette en 3 actes de Louis Ganne. COCORICO!
Livret de M.M. G. Duval Soulie & Jailly
Max Eschig Editeur; Paris
An enchanting design for this operetta of romance and misunderstanding whose loosely translated title means when the cock crows. A scarlet cock heralding the suns arrival in the navy night sky represents the action; a pink-ribboned fan, sword, and cockaded military hat are included to represent the lovers. As with most opera and operetta posters of this period, it was produced by the publisher to advertise the libretto rather than any actual performance. Louis Ganne (1862-1923) was a pupil of Ceasar Franck who went on to specialize in operettas.
The rooster is an interesting change from Grun's well known designs of sexy robust women!
