Afternoon Of A Faun: Mallarmé, Debussy, Nijinsky
141 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 27 x 37 cm.
"This elegant, oversized volume, based on a major exhibition at the Musee d'Orsay in Paris recreates the magic of that night with Baron De Meyer's dramatic photographs, Leon Bakst's brilliant drawings, and Debussy's celebrated scoree. Included, too, are works directly inspired by the ballet by such artists of the day as Degas, Whistler, Manet, Kokoschka, Redon, Munch and Gaugain, as well as brilliant commentaries by Rodin, Hoffmanstahl, Diaghilev, and Cocteau on this unprecedented artistic event." -- from the book jacket flap
