Research series: The Art and Artists of Russia (9) The Ballets Russes

Greetings!

I’ve done something different this week and filmed the session.

It’s probably about an hour long – so you might need a cup of coffee & a biscuit!

(It does get a bit glitchy towards the end but keep going, the main elements are all there.)

If you can’t bear to watch, the presentation images are below with all the links and references for further researches.

For Anna Pavlova’s “The Dying Swan” on YouTube visit here.

For “The Rite of Spring” on YouTube visit here.

For Valentine Gross (nee Hugo) in the V&A Collections visit here.

For a long read on the Ballets Russes in The Tretyakov Magazine visit here.
