Object description :

"Nijinsky And The Ballets Russes."
Austrian porcelain representing Nijinsky. The costume of Léon Bakst was created for a ballet of 1914 where Nijinsky played the part of Harlequin and Tamara Karsavina that of Colombine. These 2 characters and the love triangle with Pierrot are immortalized in George Barbier's 1914 book of engravings, of which we present a framed plate on one of the attached photos (note: the statue is sold WITHOUT this engraving *).
The sculpted model was created around 1926 in Austria by the artist Fritz Behn. The version which we present carries a reference 1997, which could be a date of reprinting of this model, which is however in everything respect identical to the original model. it is a very beautiful piece, corresponding to the period of creation of modern dance by Serge Diaghilev and his Ballets Russes.
(*) Some of Barbier’s gravures with Nijinsky are available on demand.
