CLÉOPÂTRE

Oil on canvas, 65 x 93 cm

 

“CLÉOPÂTRE”- Ida Rubinstein danced following a libretto and the choreography of Michael Fokine in 1909. Here, Kees van Dongen’s artistic style hints at the revolutionary change in ballet dance. In the years following the first production, all artists of the avant-garde will participate in Sergei Diaghilev’s projects and make dance their own art form.
