ALEKSANDRA EKSTER

Aleksandra Ekster, costume design for Dance of the Seven Veils, 1917

This look was inspired by the ballet costumes of Aleksandra Ekster (1882-1949), a Russian-French painter and designer. A close friend of Picasso and Braque, she is well-known for her Cubo-Futurist designs and, later, Art Deco paintings.
