This postcard reproduces a drawing by an unknown person at La Côte Saint-André in the mid 1840s.
This lithograph has been scanned from Adolphe Jullien’s biography of Berlioz, Hector Berlioz, sa vie et ses œuvres (Paris, 1888). According to David Cairns (Berlioz vol. II , p. 335), Berlioz thought this a good likeness, but said he never wore a ring or carried a cane, and inscribed a copy “H. Berlioz – non dandy”.
A copy of this lithograph is in the Musée Hector Berlioz, with the inscription: “à mon excellent ami Edouard Rocher. Hector Berlioz” [“to my excellent friend Edouard Rocher. Hector Berlioz”]. Edouard Rocher was a close friend from La Côte Saint-André, whose family’s business founded in the early 18th century is still thriving there.
A copy of this lithograph is in the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris.
The above postcard was published in the former Soviet Union.
This engraving appeared in the 12 February 1848 issue of the Illustrated London News and is in our own collection. Berlioz was at the time in London, engaged by Louis-Antoine Jullien to conduct a series of concerts at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
This picture is from an old book in our collection. It is a very rare portrait. Copies are said to be in the following collections: National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh (Hopkinson Collection); Sibley Music Library, Eastman School of Music, University of Rochester; Collection Wolfgang Dömling, Hamburg; and the Musée Hector Berlioz. (see also next picture)
We are most grateful to Madame Chantal Spillemaecker, formerly director of the Musée Hector Berlioz, for kindly sending us this picture.
