Concerts Ysaye - Symphonie

Les Affiches Illustrees Etrangeres
Edition of 25 on Imperial Japon
Opened on January 12, 1878, the Cirque Royal was a massive theater capable of seating 3500 attendees and could dramatically present both nautical and equestrian settings.
Eugène-Auguste Ysaÿe is widely considered one of the greatest violinists who ever lived, and has been called “the Tsar of the violin”. This historically significant poster for his important 1896 concert is by Belgian Art Nouveau master Henri Meunier, a perfect marriage of visual and audial poetry by two of Belgium’s favorite sons.
