1939 · Paris
Lithographic poster on paper, printed in color with lettering and full margins. Signed "Jean Cocteau" in the stone, lower right. Sheet size: 61" x 34"; mounted on silk, rolled. Fine copy.
Our 1939 poster was restruck from the original lithograph of 1911 to advertise this, the first major exhibition concerning Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes.
The poster shows Karsavina in Le Spectre de la Rose in her costume as the young girl in the ballet, "standing on point, her hands crossed in front of her, her eyes closed facing to the left side of the image." The popularity of the exhibition caused its dates to be extended to 1 July (as is advertised on ourposter). (Inventory #: 983845)
