Ilin Skt. Peterburg 1904 - Complete set of twelve postcards (14.3 x 9.1 cm) printed in colours after Bakst, most heightened with gilt, [4]pp. list of postcards in Russian and French, cards 1, 6, 11 and 12 lighter, the others more brown, as usual. Bakst's masterpiece, according to fellow artist and art historian Alexandre Benois. During the first half of his career, Bakst (1866-1924) mostly painted landscapes, scenes and portraits. From the moment in 1899 however when he co-founded, with Serge Diaghilev, the art group Mir Isskustva [The World of Art], he progressively turned towards performing arts. He fully committed himself to his famous costume and stage designs from 1908-9 onwards, when Diaghilev created the Ballets Russes. The present work is a rare example of Bakst's early theatrical designs (1903), for the short ballet Feya kukol by Joseph Bayer, pre-dating his work for the Ballets Russes. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
