Massenet, Jules - Annotated Fragment of the Opera Comique 1887!

Item #: GA6776-GX203D


French opera composer (1842-1912), one of the greatest creators of operas from his time.

Fantastic, a really unique piece of memorabilia consisting of a fragment of the wallpaper from the Opera Comique building, after a fire in 1887 destroyed it. Massenet collected and a piece of the wallpaper, attached it to a piece of paper, and preserved it. It was part of his estate when he passed away in 1912, a large part of it was kept in his family until it went to auction many years and several generations later, in the 1980s. A New York dealer purchased it, and kept it in his estate and collection until 2015 when we purchased it. Now it can be yours!

Total size is 4.1 x 3.2 inches, is annotated in ink at the top by Massenet himself, who wrote what it is and that this comes from the Opera Comique in Paris, which was victim of a fire in May 1887. Cut corners, overall age-toning, glue residues on the back, but in very good condition.
