Lot description
This lithograph depicts a scene from the revival of Florimond Ronger Hervé's operetta-revue "Chilpéric" in early 1895. The play brings to life the legends of the Merovingian king Chilpéric I, who ruled in the mid-6th century. One of the legends tells a story of Chilpéric on a hunt, where he comes upon a woman named Fredegonde who he takes as his mistress. As he is betrothed to a woman named Galswinthe, he tries to get rid of Fredegonde. The spurned Fredegonde attempts to stop the wedding of Chilpéric and Galswinthe but is unsuccessful. On their wedding night, Fredegonde booby-traps their bed, causing Galswinthe to fall into a dungeon. This image depicts actor Albert Brasseur as King Chilpéric, entering the wedding on horseback. Lautrec also produced several images of lead actress Marcelle Lender.

This impression is from the second state (of 2). It has Lautrec's monogram on the stone in the lower left corner. It comes beautifully framed as shown.
