Harry Clarke illustrations from Goethe’s Faust, 1925

...”Mortal! the loftiest attributes of men,

Reason and Knowledge, only thus contemn,

Still let the Prince of lies, without control,

With shows, and mocking charms delude thy soul

I have thee unconditionally then!

Fate hath endow’d him with an ardent mind,

Which unrestrain’d still presses on for ever,

And whose precipitate endeavour

Earth’s joys o’erleaping, leaveth them behind.

Him will I drag through life’s wild waste,

Through scenes of vapid dulness, where at last

Bewilder’d, he shall falter, and stick fast;

And, still to mock his greedy haste,

Viands and drink shall float his craving lips beyond -

Vainly he’ll seek refreshment, anguish-tost,

And were he not the devil’s by his bond,

Yet must his soul infallibly be lost!”…

Mephistopheles

Karl Friedrich Schinkel, set designs for Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute); The Hall of Stars in the Palace of the Queen of the Night [Königin der Nacht]; Entwurfzeichnung zum Bühnenbild, Berlin, c. 1816.

I saw the originals of these at the Getty a few years ago, they’re amazing.
