Bakst in Greece
In this book Charles Spencer describes Bakst's travels in Greece, his numerous studies of landscapes, cities, art and costume. He explains the profound effect on Bakst of seeing Sir Arthur Evans working on the reconstruction of the palace of Minos at Knossos in Crete and his visit to the site of Mycenae in the Peloponnese. Architectural and sculptural details from these famous sites would constantly be incorporated in Bakst's decors. The text is fully illustrated with drawings, portraits, motifs, whilst a large series of colour plates acclaim Bakst's genius as a theatrical designer, notably in the recreation of Hellenic dress. In addition to drawings, the illustrations include original costumes, now in private and public collections, as well as fashion designs.
This fascinating and sumptuous publication will delight lovers of Greece as well as admirers of the Ballets Russes and especially of Bakst's genius.
