The Costumer's Manifesto is written by Tara Maginnis, and proudly hosted by William Baker.

THE MANIFESTO IS MUTATING!  IT IS TURNING INTO A WIKI THAT CAN BECOME THE HIVE MIND OF ALL COSTUMERS, FINALLY LIVING UP TO IT'S SLOGAN: "COSTUMERS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!" YOU CAN HELP IN THIS PROCESS BY MOVING PAGES TO THE NEW SITE AT <a href="http://thecostumersmanifesto.com">THECOSTUMERSMANIFESTO.COM</a>, HELPING TO EDIT THE PAGES THAT ARE THERE ALREADY, AND ADDING YOUR OWN ORIGINAL INPUT.

Russian Deco Mystery Designs


I have here two designs, (below) in gouache, for a dance piece, that I bought on eBay absurdly cheap:

 <a href="../russia/russiandancer.jpg"><img border="2" src="../russia/russiandancer_small.jpg" alt="russiandancer.jpg (122254 bytes)" width="100" height="145"></a> <a href="../russia/meditdancer.jpg"> <img border="2" src="../russia/meditdancer_small.jpg" alt="meditdancer.jpg (113281 bytes)" width="100" height="135"></a>

They were framed, and sealed, and between paper, and other indications, I'd guess them somewhere from 1920-1940.  There is no signature, notes or stamps. The left image is of a Russian Folk dancer, the right, is a folk dancer of another nationality (Italian?  Spanish? Hungarian?). They are obviously by a Russian designer, but who, and from what show?  I'm not interested in selling them, but I am interested in finding out who did them.   Any suggestions may be sent to <a href="mailto:Tara@costumes.org">Tara@costumes.org</a>   Chances are that if you don't understand why I say they are definitely by a Russian from 1920-1940, you won't have the answer.  However, you might be able to identify the nationality of the dancer's dress on the right better than I can.  So far two people have sent me ideas, one that the designs are by Alexandra Exter the other idea was Tatiana Puni, but I can't confirm either of these.  The closest designs I've found in a book are by Pavel Tchelew, but they are not that close in style.  A guy from Yugoslavia thinks that the figure on the right represents a Hungarian, and I think that guess may be correct.
