Costumes, dancing, music and sketching

Hello lovelies! As you already guessed I feel an special admiration when in some works drawing and fashion meet.  And as you know, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the so-called third wave of Russian classical music took place, with famous authors such as Stravinsky, Skriabin, Prokófiev and Shostakovich. Under that musical heyday, the collaboration between composers, dancers, actors, choreographers, costume designers and other artists, was very intense and splendid and artists like Matisse, Picasso or Léon Bakst had a prominent role with their contribution in some works and operas, with a remarkable search for a Total Art or the encounter of different artistic disciplines. Here we’ve got an gorgeous example. One more time, thanks so much for your visits!

Dears followers:

This began as a tribute to the fashion designer EDITH HEAD, but after checking a film like ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’, then appears the need to honoring to a genius of popular music of the 20th century as Burt Bacharach, and of course to the actors as Paul Newman, Katharine Ross and Robert Redford.

We can neglect the title of this movie, but everybody ever heard about the lyrics ‘Raindrops keep falling on my head’ the song sung by Billy Joe Thomas.

Although less known, but a ‘sublime poem’ sung by The Ron Hicklin Singers with  a “daba-daba-da” style. A true jewel able to make us smile and cry at the same time.

Thanks for your visit and enjoy.
