In Whirl of Dance with Leon Bakst

MustART Gallery has opened the exhibition In the Whirl of Dance presenting original graphic art works by Leon Bakst.

      Leon Bakst was a prominent artist, stage designer, book illustrator, and one of the most notable members of the famous World of Art group and Sergey Diaghilev’s Russian Seasons (aka Ballets de Russes). Leon Bakst made a theater revolution: he taught his contemporaries to see the acting space, sceneries and costumes in a new light.

      In 1913 his friend and colleague Jean Cocteau suggested making helioengravings of his most considerable works and painting them manually in pochoir technique with the use of stencils.

      MustART Gallery displays more than 40 helioengravings of Leon Bakst’most notable sketches for theatrical costumes.

      The exhibition will be held till March 12.
