"Personalities of Opera" Mural by Napier Waller - Myer Emporium Mural Hall, Bourke Street, Melbourne
"Personalities of Opera" Mural by Napier Waller - Myer Emporium Mural Hall, Bourke Street, Melbourne
In 1931 Sidney Myer (1878 – 1934) Russian emigre turned Melbourne businessman and philanthropist decided to reinvigorate his store the Myer Emporium by redeveloping his flagship Bourke Street store at 314-336 Bourke Street. Part of this included a new facade in the prevailing interwar style of the time – Art Deco and the addition of several more floors to what was already a very large department store. On the sixth floor a chic European style ballroom with soaring ceilings, sweeping stairs and parquet flooring was planned for use by the emporium’s patrons as a dining room by day and in which Myer could host Parisian fashion shows and hold exclusive Melbourne society events by night. The Myer Mural Hall, so called because of an impressive collection of ten murals by Australian artist Napier Waller, was the realisation of Sidney Myer’s dream. The Mural Hall, a dining hall suitable for a sitting for one thousand people and a venue for fashion parades and performances, was completed in 1933 as part of the sixth floor which was set aside for dining. It is a large rectangular space with a decorative plaster ceiling and balconies and wall panels in a Streamline Moderne style. However, it is the decoration of ten murals by renowned artist Napier Waller (1893-1972) that are the Mural Hall’s claim to fame. The murals took a little over a year to complete and were painted at Napier Waller’s home at Fairy Hills in Ivanhoe before being transported to the department store where they were hung. Completed in 1934, just after Sidney Myer’s death, eight of the murals are almost floor to ceiling, whilst the remaining two are located over the two side entrances. All pay homage to the seasons and to women and their achievements through history in the areas of art, opera, literature, dance, sport and fashion. The eastern wall features a mural "Personalities of Opera". It features: Spanish opera singer Adelaina Patti (1843 – 1919) as Aida; Swedish opera singer Jenny Lind (1820 – 1887) as Somnambula; Australian opera singer Dame Nellie Melba (1861 – 1931) as Marguerite; German opera singer Wilhelmine Schroder-Devrient (1804 – 1860) as Norma; French opera singer Maria Felicita Malibran (1808 – 1836) as Semiramide; Australian opera singer Lillian Crisp (18?? – 19??) characterizing Fritz Hart’s (1879 – 1949) Deidre (Sidney Myer was involved in Fritz Hart’s success as a conductor in Australia); American opera singer Geraldine Farrar (1882 – 1967) as Thasi; Polish opera singer Marcella (Marcia) Sembrich (1858 – 1935) as Mimi; French opera singer Emma Calve (1858 – 1942) as Carmen; Italian opera singer Luisa Tetrazzini (1871 – 1940) as Rosina; Italian opera singer Amelita Galli-Curci (1882 – 1963) as Juliet; German opera singer Sabine Heinefetter (1809 – 1872) as Romeo; German opera singer Lilli Lehmann (1848 – 1929) as Isolde; Scottish opera singer Mary Ann Paton (1802 – 1864) as Susannah in “The Marriage of Figaro”; Australian opera singer Florence Austral (1892 – 1968); Canadian opera singer Dame “Marie” Emma Albani (1847 – 1930) in a scene from “Tannhauser”; Romanian opera singer Alma Gluck (1884 – 1938) as Rimski-Koraskoff’s Snow Maiden; American opera singer Lillian Nordica (1857 – 1914) as Salome; French composer Charles Gounod (1818 – 1893); German composer Wilhelm Richard Wagner (1813 – 1883); Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi (1814 – 1901); and Orpheus, son of Apollo and the muse Calliope, famous in Greek mythology for his skill on the lyre with which he could subjugate even rocks and trees. Napier Waller (1893 – 1972) was a noted Australian muralist, mosaicist and painter. He served in France from 1916, being so seriously wounded at Bullecourt that he lost his right arm. He was right-handed but learned to use his left hand while recuperating. Back in Australia, he established his reputation by exhibiting more paintings. He is perhaps best known for the mosaics and stained glass for the Hall of Memory at the Australian War Memorial, Canberra, completed in 1958. However, Melbourne has been described as "a gallery of Napier Waller’s work". Pieces of Napier Waller’s works may be found in the Melbourne Town Hall (1927), the State Library of Victoria (1928), the T & G Life Building (1929), Newspaper House (1933), Florentino’s Restaurant (1934), the Wesley Church (1935) and the University of Melbourne (1940) as well as the Myer Mural Hall.

The western wall features a mural "Winter - Actresses and Drama from Medieval Times to the Present". It features: Ellen Terry (1848 – 1928), the English stage actress who became the leading Shakespearean actress in Britain; Sarah Bernhardt (1844 – 1923) as Phaedra, who is still regarded today as the greatest tragedienne of all time by students of the theatre; Italian actress Eleanora Duse (1858 – 1924) as Cleopatra, rivaling Sarah Bernhardt in the role of La Dame aux Camellias; Moliere (Jean-Baptiste Poquelin) (1622 – 1673), the greatest French comic dramatist of the 17th Century; and David Garrick (1717 – 1779), the English actor, playwright and theatre manager of great renown.
