Lev Bakst 1866-1924

St. Petersburg: Rus muz, 2016. sewn cl. Bakst was one of the major figures of the early twentieth-century artistic movement known as World of Art. His range was exceptional: he did strong portraits of great contemporaries such as Lev Tolstoi, Alexander Benois, and Sergei Diagilev, and, as this Russian Museum exhibition catalogue demonstrates,  devoted himself with success to many other forms and genres: book covers, stage curtains, book plates; costume and set design for theater, opera, and ballet; postcards, posters, porcelain, and textile design. Over 25 museums, galleries, and private collectors lent works for this exhibition celebrating 150 years since the artist's birth, and many of the works published here are unfamiliar and show a fresh aspect of Bakst's talent. Nicely printed in Italy in large format. 143 p., approx. 250 color and b/w illus., Rus. Item #1580
