The Fallen Woman and the Monks

The Fallen Woman and the Monks

Now that we have your attention again, we are pleased to announce that Graphis Publications has selected 2 posters created by Tom Fowler, Inc. for inclusion in their upcoming hard cover annual, Graphis Poster 97. Both posters were created for the Connecticut Grand Opera & Orchestra.

The first poster was created for the opera “La Traviata” (which means “The Fallen Woman”), and depicts the image of a bed with a reclining heart. The final act of the opera takes place in Violetta’s bedroom where she collapses in her lovers arms and dies.

The second poster was created for a performance of “Carmina Burana”. In the 12th century, Benedictine monks discovered a collection of suggestive secular poems, which lay shelved in their abbey for over half a millennium. Carl Orff took these poems and created one of the choral masterpieces of this century. The poster portrays a monk with an amusing grin on his face.
