"Winter - Actresses and Drama from Medieval Times to the Present" Mural by Napier Waller - Myer Emporium Mural Hall, Bourke Street, Melbourne




"Winter - Actresses and Drama from Medieval Times to the Present" 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 western wall features a mural "Winter - Actresses and Drama from Medieval Times to the Present". It features: Hrotsvitha (935 – 1002 A.D.), a Benedictine nun from the remote Saxon convent of Grandersheim, who was the first woman or person of any importance in the history of theatre in Europe; Theodora (500 – 548 A. D.), a dancer and actress who in 521 A.D. married the Byzantine Emperor Justinian and became the most powerful and influential woman in the Byzantine Empire’s history; the Muse of Drama; Mary Saunderson Betterton (1637 – 1712) as Cordelia, who was an actress and singer in England and is considered to be one of the first English actresses; Madame Lucia Elizabeth Vestris (1797 – 1856) as Portia, who was known as the first modern theatrical female director, theatre producer and manageress; William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616), England’s greatest poet and dramatist; Margaret Hughes (1645 – 1719) who played the first Desdemona, was mistress to Prince Rupert and who had to sell his jewellery gifts to Nell Gwynne to pay off her gambling debts; Sir Henry Irving (1838 – 1905), an English stage actor in the Victorian era who also managed London’s Lyceum Theatre; 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; Armande-Gresinde-Claire-Elisabeth Bejart (1640 – 1700), French actress, wife of Moliere and daughter of Madeline Bejart; Madeline Bejart (1618 – 1672), the French actress, theatre director and manageress of Moliere’s theatre company; Lanthe, claimed to be England’s first actress, making her initial bow in 1657 despite legal prohibition of theatrical performances by women in public; Sarah Siddons (1755 – 1831), the best known tragedienne in the 18th Century, in particular for her portrayal of Lady Macbeth; Isabella Andreini (1562 – 1604), also known as Isabella Da Padova who was an Italian actress and writer, who worked with her husband Francesco Andreini worked with Scalla in performing the Commedia dell’arte style; and David Garrick (1717 – 1779), the English actor, playwright and theatre manager of great renown.

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 V
