Adèlaide donnant le poison au jeune page.
Ferdinand Victor Eugène Delacroix
* 1798 in Charenton-Saint-Maurice † 1863 in Paris
Lithograph on chine-collé. Size of sheet: 34.8 x 27.5 cm.
Literature: Delteil 124, only state (fort rare).
Sixth known plate (Act. V. Sc. VIII) from the series of seven prints illustrating Goethe's drama in five acts Goetz de Berlichingen, written in 1773. Delacroix started the series in 1836 and worked on it until 1843 eventually completing seven designs, but never published the lithographs as a suite.
Very rare impression of the only state.
