After almost 15 years of the extraordinary work that was the illustration of Dante's Divine Comedy, Miquel Barceló faces a new challenge: the illustration of another great universal classic such as Goethe's Faust. The great themes of the German master come to life in the watercolors of Barceló: the desire for immortality, seduction for the diabolical, the debate between eternal love and carnal passion, the insatiable craving for knowledge. Miquel Barceló joins the long list of creators who have enriched with his art one of the most fascinating myths engendered by the human imagination. The translation of the German classic is by Helena Cortés Gabaudan, and is presented in a bilingual German-Spanish edition. This first volume contains 72 illustrations in a 240-page book - more of less one third of the book is made up of Miquel Barceló's watercolors. An exceptional work for a book called to move into art history.
