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!
