Ballet Russe - Theatre de Monte-Carlo (Tamara Karsavina) (set of 2), 1911
This poster advertises the premiere performance of the ballet "Le Spectre de la Rose", at the Theatre in Monte Carlo. The Ballet Russe was the dance company created by the impresario Diaghelev which had a sweeping impact on European art and design. The image is by the multi-talented Jean Cocteau, who was also a poet, filmmaker, and boxing manager. It shows the Russian ballerina Tamara Karsavina on point in a production that also starred her partner, Nijinsky. The poster combines an exquisite sensitivity to the sweetness and prettiness of the dancer with a formal boldness that anticipates Art Deco.
