Léon Bakst (1866-1924) is a world-known master of painting and drawing, whose impact on the flourishing of Russian theatrical and decorative art is hard to overestimate. His designs for costumes and decorations were great part of the success of Sergey Diaghilev's "Les saisons russes" - ballet and opera performances in Russia, France and other countries. The art of Bakst largely influenced theatrical art all over the world. It became an outstanding example of a thoughtful combination of experiments with form and interest to the artistic tradition of the Ancient East and antiquity.
The exhibition dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the master presents around 100 works from the Russian museum collection and other museums.
The exhibition is sponsored by VTB Bank
