Image of the Day

Day three of my Elektra homage sees me introduce you to a poster designed in Munich back in 1910.  It is as close to the original as I'd imagine it to be, if indeed the original actually survived.  Designed by Ludwig Hohlwein for a week long festival in Strauss' honour, the figure in the image is allegedly that of Zdenka Fassbender, from the Munich premiere of the opera.  I have always loved this poster, it captures the Jugendstil feeling at the time perfectly.
