Title: Designs on the Dances of Vaslav Nijinsky
Author: George Barbier
Publisher: C. W. Beaumont & Co.
Printing Year: 1913 Limited Edition

Condition/Details: Bound in large cream thin-card wrappers with blue and black lettering and a pictorial design on the upper cover, this antique volume is a scarce limited edition of acclaimed artist George Barbier’s collection of illustrations, translated into English by C. W. Beaumont and containing a foreword by Francis de Miomandre. This work is from a limited edition printing, number 99 of 400. This was the sole edition printed in English. The work features dancers in various poses, inspired by Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes and in particular the Russian ballet dancer Nijinsky. This volume contains all 12 of the original full-page hand-colored pochoir plates by Barbier and three uncolored illustrations after Barbier.

George Barbier (1882 - 1932) was one of the great French illustrators of the early 20th century. Born in Nantes, France on October 10, 1882, Barbier was 29 years old when he mounted his first exhibition in 1911 and was subsequently swept to the forefront of his profession with commissions to design theatre and ballet costumes, to illustrate books, and to produce haute couture fashion illustrations. For the next 20 years Barbier led a group from the Ecole des Beaux Arts who were nicknamed by Vogue "The Knights of the Bracelet"—a tribute to their fashionable and flamboyant mannerisms and style of dress. Included in this élite circle were Bernard Boutet de Monvel and Pierre Brissaud (both of whom were Barbier's first cousins), Paul Iribe, Georges Lepape, and Charles Martin. During his career Barbier also turned his hand to jewelry, glass and wallpaper design, wrote essays and many articles for the prestigious Gazette du bon ton. In the mid 1920s he worked with Erté to design sets and costumes for the Folies Bergère and in 1929 he wrote the introduction for Erté's acclaimed exhibition and achieved mainstream popularity through his regular appearances in L'Illustration magazine. Barbier died in 1932 at the very pinnacle of his success. (biographical detail courtesy of Wikipedia)

The volume shows external age/wear, with moisture indications, and chipping and creasing to the wrappers. The wrappers are beginning to separate along the spine and the spine shows some loss. The text block is well bound with age-toned pages. The colors on the full-page, intricately detailed illustrations remain vivid. The book measures approximately 11" x 13" and is unpaginated.

This volume is one of several lots offered throughout this catalog from the estate of an illustrator who lived in the late 1800's-mid 1900's and worked for publishing house Conde Nast, known for publications such as Vanity Fair, Vogue and The New Yorker. This artist also worked on costume and set design for theatrical productions, including several Broadway shows.
