An original Swiss lithograph poster, circa 1910, by Jean Morax for the play, Alienor, French for Eleanor (of Acquitaine), written by René Morax with music by Gustave Doret, a 'legend' in five acts, lasting from 2 to 5 1/2 hours (!), in Arts and Crafts period medieval revival style, depicting 2 figures, one with a harp, in an autumnal landscape of golden leaved birch trees, rolling farmland and an expansive walled city in the distance. Printed by J. Mangenat, Lausanne, Switzerland, with pencil inscription from the artist to a Monsieur Ritter, in the upper right corner. René Morax was best known as a playwright who also founded the Theatre du Jorat where he staged historically based plays and revived a tradition of popular theater, introducing folk-themed music by well-known composers, including Arthur Honegger and Gustave Doret.
