About this artwork

He was part of the Sergei Diaghilev circle and the Ballets Russes, where he created vivid, color-rich sets and costumes. One of his designs for Vaslav Nijinsky for the ballet La Peri, or The Flower of Immortality, first shown in Paris in 1912, is displayed in this print.The drawing showcases Bakst's deep involvement with Symbolism and Art Nouveau. Moreover, it also highlights his dramatic use of line and color. He seemed to have a flair for the dramatic, which is evident in this work.

About the artist

Léon Bakst, a trailblazing artist born in Russia in 1866, was part of a fresh wave of European artists who broke away from the conventional 19th-century stage realism, sparking a revolution in theatrical design. From a tender age, Bakst showed a deep love for visual arts. He bagged first place in a drawing competition at 12 and resolved to become a painter. He later refined his skills at the St Petersburg Academy of Arts and earned a living as a part-time book illustrator.

In the dawn of the 1900s, Bakst ventured into stage design and by 1909, he moved to Paris. There, he created stage sets and costumes for Diaghilev's emerging ballet company. Bakst was well known for his ornate costumes, lavishly adorned with a diverse range of motifs and decorative elements. His costumes featured a rich combination of textures, blending appliqué, painting, dyeing and embroidery with elements like flocking, beading, sequins, metal studs, braids, pearls and jewels.

Bakst's exceptional designs extended beyond the stage into fashion and interior design. He introduced relaxed clothing styles and replaced dull colours, bringing a refreshing twist to both industries.
