Don Quixote
1983 - Original unpublished pen and ink drawing of Don Quixote, measuring 15” x 23,” with Moser’s pencil caption: “Feodor Chaliapin as Don Quichotte – Barry Moser 1983.” The frontal-view portrait depicts Don Quixote with his head upturned, hair on end, mustache and goatee bristling, neck muscles straining, and eyes bulging with adventure. Cervantes’s story fascinated Russian bass Chaliapin, who starred in Jules Massenet’s memorable opera "Don Quichotte," which premiered in 1910, as well as director G. W. Pabst’s film "Adventures of Don Quixote," which was released in French, German, and English sound versions in 1933. Cervantes’s story also long fascinated Moser, who, 22 years after penning this unpublished portrait of Don Quixote, illustrated Barbara Nichols’s "Tales of Don Quixote." Professionally matted.
