This is an Original Vintage Poster created in 1934 by the French artist, Georges Dola, who created numerous posters and music covers for theater acts and performing artists. La Comte de Luxembourg is a three act operetta composed by Franz Lehar and written by Alfred Maria Willner and Robert Bodanzky. It was originally performed in German. The themes in this piece focus on the effect of wealth on love and marriage. This was a recurring theme in operettas that were popular during the years of the Great Depression.
The artist, Georges Dola (1872-1950) was born in Dole - a town in Eastern France. Dola's birth name was Edouard Vernier but he painted under the name of Georges Dola, having taken his name from his hometown. He was a painter, printer (specializing in lithography), and a graphic designer. He was also well known for his sheet music covers and his operetta poster works. He worked in Paris, mostly in the film and advertising industries.
